JULY, 1893. 


Thomas Ricker Lambert was a son of William and Abigail 
(Ricker) Lambert, and was born at South Berwick, Maine, July 2, 
1809. His father, William Lambert, a son of Thomas aud Apphia 
(Gage) Lambert, was born at Rowley, Massachusetts, July 22, 
1772, and was graduated at Dartmouth College in 1798. He 
studied law with the Hon. Dudley Hubbard of South Berwick, and 
settled in practice there. After many years he went to Gloucester, 
Massachusetts, where he died December 11, 3 624. 

Thomas R. Lambert was the seventh generation in descent from 
Francis 2 Lambert, an early settler of Rowley, Mass., who was 
admitted a freeman of the colony of Massachusetts Lay, May 13, 
1840 ; through Thomas 1 ' and wife Ednah Nortliend ; Thomas 3 and 
wife Sarah ; Thomas 4 ; Thomas" and wife Apphia Gage, and W illiam, 
above-named, his father, whose wife was Abigail, daughter of Capt. 
Ebenezer Ricker, of Rollinsford, Xew Hampshire. 

He studied at the South Berwick and Exeter academies, intending 
I to enter Dartmouth College, of which institution his father was a 

graduate ; but receiving an appointment as a cadet in the United 
States Military Academy at West Point, lie exchanged his intended 
collegiate course for a military education. Ill health compelled him 
to resign his cadetship. He then began the study of law in the 
office of the Hon. Levi Woodbury, of Portsmouth, N. II. , and 
remained with him till the spring of 1831, when Mr. Woodbury 
was called by President Jackson to his cabinet as Secretary of 
the Navy. Mr. Lambert finished his studies in the office of the Hon. 
Ichabod Bartiett. He was admitted to the bar in 1^32, and com- 
menced the practice of the law in Great Falls, N. II. " His debut 
at the Strafford bar was an argument in a breach of marriage con 
tract in 1833, in Dover, which he brought for a lady, and won hi

case. A contemporary says : ' It was Mr. Lambert's first argu- 
ment in a court of justice, and as such gave assurance of his future 
eminence as a successful and eloquent advocate.' ' 

After practising Ins profession for a short time, he studied theol- 
ogy with the Eev. G. W. Olney of Maine, and became a candidate 
for orders in the Episcopal Church. In 1834, Mr. Woodbury, who 
was then Secretary of the Navy, appointed him a chaplain in the 
Navy. In 1836, he was ordained by the Eight Rev. Alexander 
Yiets Griswold, D.D., bishop of the Eastern Diocese. 

After his appointment in the Navy, he made many voyages in 
government vessels and saw much of the world. lie served under 
Commodores Wads worth and Rousseau and Capt. Wilkinson in the 
frigates Brandy wine, Constitution and Columbia. During one of 
his vacations he instituted the parish of St. Thomas, at Dover, 
N. II. In a later and lunger leave of absence he officiated as rector 
of Grace Church, New Bedford, Mass., for about four years, ending 
in 1845. He then resumed his chaplaincy in the Navy, serving at 
the Navy Yard in Charlestown. After ten years of service he 
resigned the chaplaincy and became rector of St. John's Church, in 
the same city. Here he officiated for twenty-eight years, resigning 
the rectorship in 1884, when lie was nearly seventy-five years old. 
The liter years of his life were passed in retirement, free from the 
cares of a parish. He was a member of the Standing Committee of 
the diocese of Massachusetts, and held the position at his death. 

Dr. Lambert received the honorary degree of Master of Arts in 
1845 from Brown University, and the same degree from Trinity- 
College in 1852. The degree of Doctor of Sacred Theology was 
conferred upon him in 1863 by Columbia College. 

He was an honored member of the Masonic fraternity. His friend, 
the Hon. Charles Levi Woodbury, of Boston, son of the Hon. Levi 
Woodbury, wrote a sketch of Dr. Lambert's life, which was printed 
in the Proceedings of the Council of Deliberation of the Ancient 
and Accepted Scottish Rite, June 2$, 1892 (pp. 55-8). Mr. 
Weodburv sketches his career as a Mason as follows : — 

At the age of twenty-one, in 1830, he was initiated in Libanus Lodge, 
Great Falls, N. II. In the same year he was made a Royal Arch Mason 
in Belknap Chapter, Dover, X. II. He received the order,-, of Knighthood 
in De Witt Clinton Commandery, Knights Templars, Portsmouth. N. II. 
He held various offices in these organizations, and in 1848 was Chaplain of 
the Grand Lodge of New Hampshire. Oct. 24, 1849, he became a mem- 
ber of De Molay Commandery, of Massachusetts; was its Prelate two 
years; in 1851, was elected its Generalissimo, and was its Commander in 
1853, 1851 and 1855. During the same period he was Chaplain of the 
Massachusetts Lodge, of St. Paul's Chapter, and for six years — 1850. '51, 
'52, '53. '54, '58 — was Chaplain of the Grand Lodge of Massachusetts. He 
was tho Prelate of the Grand Commandery of Knights Templars for

Massachusetts and Rhode Island; and was Grand Prelate of the General 
Grand Encampment of the United States, 1SGS, '71 

Dr. Lambert advanced through the degrees of the Scottish Rite until June, 
18G9, when he was crowned a Sovereign Inspector General of the 33d 
decree. In 1879 he was appointed Grand Prior of the Supreme Council 
for the Northern Jurisdiction of the United States, and performed its duties 
for about six years. 

Dr. Lambert delivered a Fourth of July oration at Great Falls 
in 1 833; an address before the Seaman's Widow and Orphan So- 
cictv at Salem in 1842, and another before the New Bedford Port 
Society in 1843. " He was the orator of the Literary Societies of 
Brown University at\its annual Commencement in 1845. He 
delivered also several lyceurn lectures. His principal published 
discourses have been two on the Rebellion, one on his decade as 
rector of St. John's Church, and another on the death of his senior 
Warden, Peter Hubbell."* 

Mr. Woodbury, whose sketch o^ Dr. Lambert has been quoted, 
has furnished at my request the following reminiscences : — 

Boston, May 15, 1893. 

My Dear Sir : — ■ When I first knew Dr. Lambert, he had left West 
Point, and entered my father's office as a student at law (I should say it 
was in 1830) ; he was a slender, handsome blonde, about eighteen years of 
age, very fair, as I remember, and of polished and graceful manners, but 
retiring; I do not remember any very special anecdotes of him then, 
though forty or fifty years after he used to tell in a humorous way some 
about me; but I remember quite well talking often to him about life and 
its incidents at West Point. Later onward, when he had studied divinity 
with the Rev. Dr. Olney, and had received the appointment of chaplain in 
the navy, I often met him at my father's house in Washington, where he 
was a valued visitor and friend, and have heard him describe the incidents 
and impressions of his voyages up the Mediterranean. He had visited the 
Holy Land in the party of lion. Lewis Cass, then minister of the United 
States to France, who with his family had been passengers in Commodore 
Elliott's flagship to the Levant, and had left her for this excursion. I am 
not sure whether he made the entire trip through Palestine with them, for 
I had several friends in the party, and cannot now distinguish what I 
gleaned from each. 

Dr. Lambert had been stationed on the flagship, but at a late time in the 
cruise was transferred to the schooner of the fleet; but whether Governor 
Cass and family were then on the frigate, I do not recall. The Levant 
was not then a thronged thoroughfare for ocean steamers, and he who had 
looked upon Olympus, Marathon and the Acropolis, had cruised through 
the Isles of Greece, and had breathed the air of Palestine, or swung at 
anchor in Acre and Rhodes, was a Palmer, a Hadji, or perhaps a Crusader 
in the eyes of us stay-at-home Western folk, who realized that light came 
from the East, and sought to gather more of its sparkles from the interest- 
mg conversation of one as apt to receive and as willing to communicate to 
his friends as the Doctor.

296 Thomas Richer Lambert. [July? 

Years after this, when on a furlough lie had taken charge of a parish in 
New Bedford, I met him there, the same kind and charming gentlemau he 

had always been, and as I soot: found endeared to his parish for his Christ- 
ian virtues and beloved for his sympathetic and social graces. Later on, 
when he had removed to Charlestown, we saw much more of each other, 
for we had ties that drew us closer. 

I must not forego to say that when my father lay dying, wasting by rapid 
degrees, at Portsmouth, Dr. Lambert visited him as a friend, administered 
what of spiritual aid the mission of the church is to give, participated in 
the funeral services, and my mother and her children gratefully received 
the consolation winch his kindly and long friendship dictated in our afflic- 

As to his sorrowing Masonic brethren, I have expressed on record my 
opinion of his high character, talents and services; a repetition is not needed 
here. lie was always good, faithful and loveable. 
[ am very truly yours, 

Chas. Levi Woodbury. 

I will supplement this with another quotation from Mr. Wood- 
bury's sketch : — 

The intellectual abilities of Dr. Lambert were of a high order, and his 
persuasive eloquence was reinforced by choice gleanings in the wide fields 
of observation that had been spread before him in his pilgrimage of life. 
It cannot be said that our deceased friend was ambitious of fame or power. 
His own family connections with statesmen distinguished in our annals 
during the last third of a century, would have opened avenues had he wish- 
ed to enter them ; but lie sought no other paths than those he trod, and 
formed no aspirations that would bend him from the choice his reason and 
his heart had made. 

Another friend of Dr. Lambert, Geo. A. Gordon, A. M., 
Recording Secretary of the New-England Historic Genealogical 
Society, furnishes me with this estimate of his character : 

Dr. Lambert was of a genial presence and agreeable manner. In many 
acts of humble benevolence and unostentatious piety he passed a long life, 
in which he filled various important stations with fidelity, ability, rectitude 
and uprightness. He was beloved by his associates and honored with the 
wide respect of every community among whom he was resident. His mild- 
ness and candor were united to a spirit of military firmness. In defence of 
his conception of truth, he was a tower of strength, yet, we think, he could 
not dispute high things for mere victory. If his arguments failed of con- 
viction from ungenial soil, he never attempted to break the stubborn glebe. 

In 1855, Dr. Lambert married Mrs. Jane Standish Colby, of 
New Bedford, a daughter of lion. John Avery Parker and widow of 
the Hon. Llarrison G. O. Colby, of Xew Bedford. Mrs. Lambert 
died some vears before her husband. Their son, William Thomas 
Lambert, wa3 born in Charlestown, January 28, 1856; and is now 
living in Boston.*

1803.] Gen. Nathaniel Peabody. 297 


By William C. Todd, Esq., of Atkinson, N. H. 

One of the most eminent men in the early history of New Hamp- 
shire as a state was Gen. Nathaniel Peabody, whose reputation was 
national r and whose services were of great value at a trying period 
and deserve to be recalled to this generation by whom he is little 
known even by name. 

He was born in Topsfield, Mass., March 1, 1741. His father 
was Jacob Peabody, a physician, and his mother was Susannah 
Rogers, a daughter of Rev. John Rogers, for fifty years minister of 
Boxford, an adjoining town. He never attended school, but received 
all his school and professional education from his father, who died 
when lie was eighteen years of age. When only about twenty years 
old he settled in Atkinson, N. IE, then a part of Plaistow, as a 
physician, where he married, March 1, 17G3, Abigail, daughter of 
Samuel Eittle. 

Active, energetic, with a mind easily mastering every subject to 
which he devoted himself, he soon gained eminence in his profes- 
sion, and many young men resorted to him for study. But not 
content with his professional duties, he soon became interested in 
civil and military affairs, for a critical period in our history was 
approaching. He was commissioned a justice of the peace and 
quorum, April 30, 1771, by Gov. John Wentworth, and, Oct. 27. 
1774, as lieut. -colonel of the 7th Regiment. In Dee. 1774, he 
went with Major Sullivan, Capt. John Langdon, Josiah Bartlett, 
and others, who assaulted Port William and Mary, confined the 
captain and five men, and took one hundred barrels of powder. 

A convention of forty towns of Massachusetts and New Hamp- 
shire was held, Nov. 26, 1776, at the house of Major Joseph Var- 
num, in Dracut, at which he was a delegate from Atkinson, and 
was chosen clerk. The object was to discuss the state of affairs 
generally, but especially the condition of the currency and the high 
price of the necessities of life. 

He was chosen, Dec. 1776, to represent Atkinson and Plaistow 
in the General Court, where he was made chairman of important 
committees. He was appointed one of the "Committee of Safety" 
with such men as Mescheck Weare, Nicholas Oilman, Josiah Bart- 
lett, John Dudley, and others — a committee given alu

Josinh Bartlett and Nathaniel Peabody were appointed, July 18, 
1777, to meet delegates from Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Con- 
necticut arid New York, at Springfield, in regard to paper money 
and its depreciation, and the same year he was made adjutant gen- 
eral of militia. He and Josiah Bartlett were sent to Bennington to 
look after the New Hampshire soldiers who had served at Benning- 
ton and Ticonderoga. 

The Continental Congress recommended that a convention should 
be held at New Haven, Jan. 15, 1778, " to regulate the price of 
labor, imported commodities <icc," of which convention Roger Sher- 
man and Robert Treat Paine were members, and Nathaniel Peabody 
and Jonathan Blanchard were appointed to represent New Hamp- 
shire. He was elected a member of the Continental Congress, March 
25, 1779, and took his seat June 22. 

The high price of merchandise and the depreciation of the currency, 
by which our army operations were retarded and general distress 
produced, were a cause of great anxiety at that time, and he was 
selected to meet other commissioners at Philadelphia, in Jan. 1780, 
to devise means of relief . In 1780 the country was apparently "on 
the brink of ruin," and lie was appointed, April 13, 1780, with 
others, by Congress, a committee to go to Morristown and investi- 
gate any wroims in the management of the armv, and correct them. 
He wrote several letters of much ability to the President of Congress 
as the result of his inquiries. For this service, and fur his diligence 
in the discharge of his duties as a member of Congress, he received 
the commendation of such men as Richard Henry Lee and John 
Langdon. Ill health compelled his resignation in Nov. 1780. In 
June 1781, however, he was again appointed a delegate to Con- 
gress, but he did not take his seat. It may be that he was deterred 
by the long journey to the seat of Congress, for he was that same 
year a member of the New Hampshire House of Representatives, 
and also in 1782 and 1783. 

In 1784 he was a member of the New Hampshire Convention to 
frame a constitution, and was chairman of the committee that drew 
it up. He was a member of the House in 1784, and also chosen 
counsellor by both branches in convention. In 1785 he was chosen 
representative and senator by the people, and counsellor by the 
legislature. He was a member of the House in 1787, 1788, 1789. 
In 1790 he was a member of the Senate, and was appointed with 
Jeremiah Smith and John Samuel Sherburne to revise the laws, that 
they may be "compiled in one volume," a marked compliment, cer- 
tainly, to one not a lawyer. In 1791 he was elected state senator, 
and was vice-president of the convention to revise the constitution. 
In 1792 he was senator for Rockingham County, and in 1793 he 
was a member of the House and was elected speaker. He was ap- 
pointed major general of militia the same year. In 1795 he wa3 a 
representative, the lust time he was a member of any legislative body 
where he had had such continuous service. 

1893.] Gen. Nathaniel Peabody. 299 

After that he held no public office unless as justice of the peace 
and quorum, his commission for which was renewed with but few 
omissions till 1821. He was not an old man, and his mental and 
physical powers had been in no way impaired, but he had become 
financially embarassed, and the modern ease of extrication had not 
been invented. It seems strange at this period of indiscriminate 
pensions that one so distinguished for his services should have spent 
the twenty closing years of his life in Exeter jail for debt. lie had, 
however, what was termed the "limits of the jail-yard," which al- 
lowed him free communication over a large part of the town, and to 
some extent he practised his profession. 

The Rev. Dr. Bouton, so familiar with Xcw Hampshire history, 
said of him : "By turns he held almost every position of honor and 
trust in the state, and can truly be called one of the most disting- 
uished men of his time." John Farmer said of him : "At the time 
he was speaker his influence was so great that by means of two or 
three associates he ruled the state." He had much wit and power 
of ridicule, so effective in debate. 

He was a friend of education, and did much to establish Atkinson 
Academy, one of the oldest in the state. He was one of the founders 
of the New Hampshire Medical Society. In recognition of his ser- 
vices in the cause of education and in so many positions of trust, 
Dartmouth College, in 1791, conferred on him the degree of Master 
of Arts. 

He was an excellent horseman, fond of dress and parade, and 
when he journeyed had fine horses and a servant, which in the end 
led to his bankruptcy. 

It is not the modern custom in biography to allude to any defects, 
?nd a popular writer of such works once said to the writer : " i ou 
must not turn a man out into the world naked." A regard for 
truth, however, compels me to acid that old persons who knew Gen. 
Peabody, while not questioning his ability and the value of Iris ser- 
vices, have spoken much of his lack of integrity, his business trickery, 
and his religious skepticism. 

His home in Atkinson was the house nearest the brick meeting 
house. Ex-Gov. Bell, in his excellent history of Exeter, states 
that he lived there "on the eastern side of the river, not far from 
the Great bridge." He died at the great age of 82, June 27, 1823. 
Ills wife survived him several years. They had no children. 

For most of the facts iu this sketch, the writer is indebted to John 
Farmer, who wrote so much and so well about men and events con- 
nected with the early history of New Hampshire. 

•00 Inscriptions at St. Augustine, Florida, [July, 


This graveyard is just without the old north gate of the town. It 
has for its southern boundary the town ditch or moat, eastwardly 
the shell road, a continuation of George St. northward, and north 
and west the grounds of the large (Saint) San Marco Hotel. Two 
lots outside (west side of its north-west corner) of the nearly square 
area of the yard proper are burial lots (one or both) for Jews, but 
containing no inscribed stones. The fence of the graveyard proper 
is of posts and boards, the entrance gate on its east side being mainly 
of wrought iron and upheld by cement posts. A hedge, addition- 
ally, of low cedars runs along and inside its east line. Scattered 
about within are various planted trees, the cedar predominating, some 
of which are hereafter mentioned as occuring close to graves. The 
yard and its contents are in very fair condition, though I am told 
without a care taken. 

The list following, of the occupants of graves covered with in- 
scribed stones, is complete. 1 have also noticed the graves indicated 
by fencing, or uninscribed boards, or stone3, wherever such occur. 
The rows are somewhat irregular — being out of a straight line so 
that they allow of the insertion of half rows. A good many of the 
graves are without monuments, some of which must contain several 
bodies, if one may guess from the quite long list of interments be- 
tween 1877 and 1881. During the latter year, the yard was finally 
closed as a place of interment. The previous list, or lists, of burials, 
I am told by Mr. G. T. Bunting, a resident of the town, was, or 
were, destroyed during the war. Many colored people, their graves 
unmarked with an exception or two. lie in this yard. 

Since this yard was closed Protestants have buried in the ceme- 
tery on the outskirts of ^ew, or West, St. Augustine. The old 
Catholic cemetery on Cordova St. within the ancient town lines is 
perhaps about the size of the old Protestant yard, but how it can 
contain the dead of 300 years, almost or quite, without placing them 
from 2 to 10 deep, I can hardly see. The new Catholic cemetery 
is outside the old gate, some distance, and to the east of the shell 
road. Near the Army Barracks (on St. Francis St.), south end of 
town, and connected therewith, a wailed graveyard holds the victims 
of the Dade massacre, and a number of soldiers that have died at 
this post. An old graveyard, supposed to have been used by the 
Indians, perhaps those converted by the Catholic missionaries, is now

covered by the Lynn House, south side of the Plaza. This ran out 
into the street; bounding the plaza on the south side. 

In making the following list I began copying at the south end of 
the rows and worked northwardly, The commencement of Row 1 
is in the yard's south-east corner. The work of copying was done 
earlv spring, 1892, and was reviewed February, 1893.

Margaret Hawtaine, or Hawtayne. was the widow of Gerard Hawtayne. de- 
scribed in the Herald's Visitation of 1574, as of the Ley. and also of Esington, 
which places are in Banbury. Oxfordshire. He was buried 19 June 1563. He 
was the son and heir of Edward Hawtayne and Margery, daughter of John 
Crocker of Hooknorton. 

Gerard Hawthen (the name suffers curious changes) sold to Henry Johnson 
the manor of Sebford Gower (now Sibford Gore) in the parish of Swalcliffe, 
Co. Oxon, or the capital messuages called the " Bury Parme," where the said 
Gerard II. then dwelt, they having been conveyed by Robert Sapcott of Aylton, 
Co. Huntingdon, to one James Longworth, who sold them to Edward Hawthen, 
gent., father of Gerrard. Chancery proceedings were taken 14 Nov. 1590, by 
Johnson, to recover the deed from •• one Margaret Hawthen widow of Gerard." 
Margaret, in her answer, avails herself of the ambiguity of the complaint pleaded 
by Johnson, and points out "that she knoweth not of the sale * * * and 
understand eth not the bill of Complaint * * for that she standeth seized in one 
of the Messuages by Henry Johnson's own shewinge, and heshoweth not clearly 
which of them he alledgeth Gerrard Hawthen to have bargained and soulde to 
him and his Heires nor whether Iris Heires tooke jointlye as a purchase, or that 
the feoffement was in fee simple cannot be clearly knowne by the said Bill." 
How the matter ended I have not been able to ascertain. 

In 15SS (July 23) a commission was issued to Edward Hawten. the father, 
and Thomas Hawten, a creditor of Gerrard Hawten of Banbury, deceased. 

Margaret Hawtaine's "daughter Wallopp" was Margery, the wife of John 
Wallop of Bugbrooke,* Northamptonshire, whose children were five in number. 
Margaret Hawtayne's sou Edward died without issue, and is mentioned in the 
will of his brother Henry (1G1S) as " living not in England." Henry Hawtaine, 
the eldest son of Margaret and Gerrard, described as of Banbury in 160G, claimed 
to hold of John Bishop of Lincoln, by indenture dated 12 August 1515, made to 
John Eranchishe.f arable lands demesne in the fields of Colthorpe (Banbury), 
appertaining to the manor of Banbury or Esington Grange, near Banbury * * *

1893.] William Hull 305 


By Samuel C. Clarke, Esq.. of Marietta, Georgia. 
[Concluded from page 153.] 

In February, 1812, Governor Hull being in Washington, war 
with England imminent, and the Indians threatening the people of 
Michigan, lie urged the necessity of troops at Detroit to keep the 
savages in check. President Madison accordingly called upon the 
governor of Ohio for twelve hundred militia for that service, and 
Governor Hull was asked to lead (hem to Detroit. He declined, 
stating that he did not wish for any military appointment. Col. 
Kingsbury was then ordered to the command, but was taken sick, 
and was unable to go. Governor Hull being again approached, 
he, in his anxiety for the safety of the territory, in an evil hour 
accepted the command, with the rank of brigadier general, and re- 
taining his office of governor, with the understanding that in case 
of war he was to be released from command. 

Henry Clay and other congressmen were asserting that Canada, in 
case of war with England, could easily be conquered, but Governor 
Hull, knowing the difficulties of that enterprise, was less sanguine. 
The Canadian militia were twenty times as numerous as those of 
Michigan, and the force of British troops in Canada was equal to 
that of the whole regular army of the United States in 1812. Be- 
sides which, there was a strong British rleet on the lakes, and the 
Americans had only one brig, which was still on the stocks. 
Governor Hull had repeatedly warned his government of the necessity 
of a naval force, as whoever commanded the lakes commanded the 
shores ; but nothing was done. 

In his Memoirs of his campaign, General Hull writes as follows : 

Convinced that the force entrusted to my command was sufficient for 
the protection of the frontier and the security of the Territory while we 
were at peace with Great Britain; and knowing that I had communicated 
what measures, in my opinion, would be necessary iu the event of war, 
which communications had been approved by the government, I had little 
anxiety with respect to any consequences which might have attended my 

General Hull found the three Ohio regiments of militia, 1200 
strong, wholly undisciplined, half clothed, and so badly armed that 
he was obliged to provide blankets and ammunition, and hire 
armorers to repair the muskets ; this at his own expense, for the ad- 
ministration had provided him with no available funds. 

At Urbana, Ohio, on the 1st of June, three hundred regulars 
under Col. Miller joined his force, without whose assistance the 
vol. xlvii. 27 

306 William Hull. [July, 

militia could not have been marched to Detroit, as they were mutinous 
from the start, from colonels to privates. General Hull cut a mili- 
tary road for about 200 miles through the wilderness towards Detroit 
in twenty days. Bridges, block houses and causeways were built. 
The rapids of the Miami, where Toledo now stands, was reached 
on the 30th of June. War had been declared by Congress on the 
18th, but no news of it had reached General Hull, although the 
British port at Maiden had been officially notified of it two days 
before, and as asserted by John Armstrong in his Notices of the War 
of 1812, under the Frank of the American Secretary of Treasury. 

At the rapids of the Miami, the invalids of the army, with bag- 
gage, stores and important papers, were put on board a schooner for 
Detroit. In passing the British port of Maiden this vessel was 
captured, and thus the first disaster of the campaign was directly 
caused by the nearlisrence of the authorities at Washington. On J ulv 
5th the troops under Gen. Hull reached Detroit, after one of the 
most rapid and successful marches ever made by an American force 
through the wilderness — the latter part of it in the face of a British 
force on the lake, with swarms of Indians in the woods, watching 
an opportunity for an attack. But constant vigilance prevented any 

On the 12th of July, General Hull, in obedience to instructions, 
crossed the river into Canada, with about one thousand effectives, 
his forces diminished by garrisons left in the block houses along the 
route, by sickness among the militia, prisoners taken in the schooner 
at Maiden, and by the mutinous spirit in the army, which induced 
nearly 200 men to refuse to cross the river. 

General Hull established his camp at Sandwich, opposite Detroit, 
and proposed to attack Makk-n, but no siege guns had been provided 
for, and when he proposed an assault, offering to lead it himself, 
only Colonel Miller would answer for the conduct of his regiment, 
now reduced by sickness to 200 men, the other colonels, Cass, Mc- 
Arthur and Finley, although they and their men had been clamoring 
for an attack, now lost all stomach for it. So it became necessary to 
wait till guns could be brought from Detroit, and have carriages 
made for them. In the meantime detachments were sent out in 
different directions, to observe the enemy, and to procure supplies. 
Some encounters took place, in which the militia generally misbe- 
haved, and were defeated with some loss. 

General Hull issued a proclamation to the Canadians, first ap- 
proved by his government, and afterwards disavowed, the authorship 
of which paper, many years after the death of Gen. Hull, was claimed 
for Lewis Cass. On the 20th of June, Henry Dearborn, the Com- 
mander-in-chief, had been directed by William Eustis, Secretary of 
War, to cooperate with Hull's army of invasion, but he did nothing. 
Orders were repeated, with no result. He still remained in Boston, 
watching the Federalists. July 9th the Secretary sent positive 
orders : " Go to Albany or to the lake." 

IS93.1 William Hull. 307 

Dearborn at Boston replied to these orders, July 13th, a few hours after 
Hull's army, six hundred miles away, crossed the Detroit into Canada, and 
challenged the whole British force on the lakes; " For some time past I have 
been in a very unpleasant situation, being at a loss to determine whether 
or not I ought to leave the sea coast." 

July 26th, when Hull had already been a fortnight on British soil, a week 
after he wrote that his success depended on cooperation from Niagara, the 
only force at Niagara consisted of a few r New York militia — while the 
Major General of the Department took it for granted that Niagara was not 
included in his command. The government therefore expected General 
Hull, with a force which it knew did not at the outset exceed two thousand 
effectives, to march two hundred miles, constructing a road as he went, to 
garrison Detroit, to guard at least sixty miles of road under the enemy's 
guns; to face a force in the held equal to his own, and another savage force 
of unknown numbers in his rear; to sweep the Canadian peninsula of 
British troops; to capture the fortress at Maiden, and the British fleet on 
Lake Erie — and to do all this without the aid of a man or a boat between 
Sandusky and Quebec* 

In the meantime the British had captured the fort at Macinac, the 
savages had destroyed the post of Chicago, and had massacred most 
of its garrison ; and General Dearborn, instead of supporting Hull's 
invasion, had made an armistice with the British commander-in-chief. 
Sir George Provost, in which General Hull's army was not included, 
which allowed General Brock, the governor of Upper Canada, to 
concentrate all bis forces against Detroit — British regulars, Canadian 
militia, employes of the Fur company and Indians, besides a strong- 
fleet on the lake which accompanied them. This news reached 
General Hull August 4th, together with dispatches from Generals 
Porter and Hall at Niagara, to inform him that no cooperation or 
assistance was to be expected from that quarter, and that large bodies 
of British troops were moving upon Detroit. Under these circum- 
stances it was necessary at once to open communication with Ohio, 
from whence must come the needed supplies and reinforcements, and 
the attack on Maiden was abandoned ; and on the 7th of August 
General Hull re-crossed the river to Detroit. This was nor. a defen- 
sible post, being commanded by the British fleet and batteries at 
Sandwich, and General Hull proposed to fall back to the river Raisin, 
and wait for the promised reinforcements. But Colonel Cass assured 
him, that in the event of a retreat, all the Ohio militia would desert 
him. So he at once sent Colonel Miller with GOO of the best troops 
to open the way to the river Raisin, where cattle and other supplies 
were awaiting convoy to Detroit. About 14 miles out Colonel Mil- 
ler found a body of British troops and Indians entrenched. He 
attacked and defeated them, but for some unexplained reason returned 
without reaching the supplies. These being absolutely necessary, 
on the 14th of August Cols. Cass and McArthur, with the effectives 
of their regiments, about 500 men. were sent by a back road through 
the woods, to the river Raisin.

308 William Hull. [July, 

General Brock, on the loth of August, appeared opposite to De- 
troit and sent a summons for its surrender. He estimated iiis forces 
at 1330 white troops and 600 Indians, but as it was the usual custom 
uf commanders to understate their own number, and overstate those 
of their opponents, and as lie claimed to have captured 2500 men in 
Detroit, when there were at most only 1000 there ; more correct 
estimates make his force 1700 whites, with from 1500 to 2000 In- 
dians. General Hull's effective force on that day was estimated by 
himself at <SQ0 men. Major Jess up, his quartermaster, who testified 
against him at the court martial, estimated it at 950 men. 

To this summons to surrender a refusal was sent, and a heavy 
bombardment was immediately opened by the British batteries across 
the river upon Detroit, which was replied to, and the fire was kept 
up on both sides until night, and several men were killed in the fort. 
During the night a body of the Michigan militia, 100 strong, de- 
serted to the enemy. Xext morning General Brock, hearing that 
■Hull's force had been weakened by the detachment of Cass and Mc- 
Arthur with 500 men, crossed the river under the protection of his 
ships and advanced to the attack of the fort, having the night before 
sent over a large force of Indians to cut off retreat in the rear. 

General Hull was now in the position in which, as he had stated 
before the war to the administration, Detroit must fall. His com- 
munications with Ohio were cut off by the Indians in his rear; the 
lake was occupied by British ships ; and no help was to be expected 
from Niagara. His forces were much inferior to those of the 
enemy; his supplies of food and ammunition were very scanty, and 
there was no possibility of obtaining any more. If he were to fight, 
he would save his own reputation, but could not save the army or 
the territory ; and the defenceless inhabitants of Michigan, committed 
to his charge as governor, would be exposed to all the horrors of 
Indian warfare. Battle could have few terrors for one who had 
taken part in most of the battles of the revolution, and had won 
promotion for his deeds of war, but he believed his duty to the people 
of Michigan to be paramount to all other claims, and he surrendered 
the post on good terms ; the protection of the inhabitants in their 
persons and property, and the parole of the militia and volunteers. 
He himself with the regular troops were taken to Montreal as priso- 
ners, and kept there until exchanged. 

Great indignation for the capture of Detroit was felt all over the 
country, as the people had been assured by the government organs 
of a speedy conquest of Canada, and at first the administration was 
silent. But it soon found a man ready to assist it in throwing the 
blame upon the commander. Colonel Cass, taking advantage of 
his parole, hastened to Washington, and wrote his celebrated letter 
of Sept. 12, 1812, which has been the principal source of all charges 
against General Hull, and « as even received as evidence at his 
trial. Its object was to throw the whole blame of the failure on 

1893.] William Hull 309 

General Hull ; stating that he needed neither men nor supplies, and 
that the British might have been defeated with ease. This letter, 
endorsed by the government, had its effect upon the public, which 
did not know that Cass had written to Gov. Meigs of Ohio and 
others, a few davs before the surrender, appealing for help, stating 
that the army was in want of everything, and must perish unless 
soon assisted. 

'As soon as General Hull was exchanged he was put under arrest, 
with charges of capital offences against him. A court martial, with 
General Wade Hampton as president, with a board of respectable 
officers, was summoned to meet at Philadelphia, where General Hull 
appeared, ready for trial. But this court was dissolved by President 
Madison without reason assigned. After General Hull had been 
another year under arrest, a new court was summoned at Albany, 
of which Henry Dearborn was made president. Mr. Henry Adams 
writes of this : w The impropriety of such a selection could not be 
denied. Of all men in the United States, Dearborn was most deeply 
interested in the result of Hull's trial, and the President, next to 
Dearborn, would be the most deeply injured by Hull's acquittal." 
The composition of the court was equally unjust. The majority 
of the members were young men, lately appointed from civil life, 
with no military training or experience — a number of them mem- 
bers of Dearborn's military family, and owing their positions to him. 

The methods of the court were similar to its composition. Horace 
Binney, one of the first lawyers of his day, volunteered to defend 
General Hull, but lie was denied the aid of counsel, while Dallas 
and Van Buren were employed to assist the prosecution. Lewis Cass, 
the principal witness for the government, being first examined, the 
other witnesses being allowed to be present, copied his testimony. 
The sittings of the court lasted for some months, and members of it 
were allowed to come and go as they pleased, while those who had 
failed to hear all the testimony were allowed to participate in the 
verdict. Hearsay evidence was also admitted. The accused re- 
peatedly remonstrated against these irregular proceedings, but was 
overruled by the court. The charges were: treason, cowardice 
and neglect of duty. The first charge was founded on the fact of 
sending a vessel to transport the invalids and baggage to Detroit ; 
but it being found that the treason, if anywhere, was in \\ ashington, 
whence the British had been informed of the Declaration of War, 
before General Hull was notified of that event, that charge was 
abandoned, Van Buren, the prosecuting officer, stating in his speech 
that it was not only unsupported but unsupportable. General Hull 
was convicted of cowardice and neglect of duty principally on the 
opinions of militia officers, few of whom had ever heard a gun fired 
in war; and by a set of judges, most of whom were equally inex- 
perienced and ignorant. These witnesses thought that General 
null's appearance indicated alarm ; and they believed that he ought 
vol. xlvii. 27* 

310 William Hull. [July, 

to have attacked Maiden — they being the same men who voted against 
the attack, and the same men whose mutinous conduct had all along 
impeded the course of the campaign. So ignorant were they of 
military duty, that some of them boasted of having plotted to depose 
their commander and put Col. Miller in his place. That officer how- 
ever declining promotion of that kind, the plot was abandoned. They 
well knew, moreover, that the acquittal of General Hull would prob- 
ably be followed by capital charges against themselves. They also 
saw Colonel Cass of the militia promoted over the heads of the 
colonels of the regular army to be a brigadier general, for these 
political services ; and Captain Snelling, who on the morning of 
August 16th had left his post without orders and marched his men 
to the fort, promoted to a colonelcy, for similar services. W hat 
wonder, then, that these men should prefer the winning side, and 
become swift witnesses against their chief! No one can read the 
proceedings of this packed court, without seeing that it was organized 
for conviction. It convicted General Hull on two charges, and 
sentenced him to be shot. The conviction having cleared the skirts 
of the administration, the sentence was remitted by Madison, lest the 
victim might become a martyr — as in the similar case of a British 
admiral who was put to death to save the credit of the British gov- 

Contrasted with the evidence of the Ohio colonels was that of 
other officers in Hull's army who had seen something of war. Col- 
onels Miller and Watson, Major Munson, Captains Maxwell and 
Dysen, and Lieut. Bacon, saw nothing in the appearance of the 
General which might not have been attributed to fatigue and a high 
sense of responsibility. 

General Hull labored under other disadvantages in this trial. 
Before he was taken as a prisoner to Canada, he put on board the 
brig Adams, at Detroit, trunks containing his personal property, 
and all his civil and military papers, under the care of his daughter, 
who with her children and other non-combatants were £oing under 
a flag of truce to the village of Buffalo. The passengers were landed 
at that place at night, and before morning the vessel with her con- 
tents were burned by a party of American sailors under Lieut. Elliot 
of the navy. In this way General Hull lost many papers necessary 
to his vindication, and when he applied at Washington for copies of 
them no notice was taken of his application. It is to be observed, 
that while most of the government witnesses received promotion, 
those who testified favorably to the accused were neglected. Lieut. 
Bacon, an officer of merit, was dropped from the army. 

A veteran soldier, who had served with distinction through all 
the war of the revolution ; who had led bayonet charges at Trenton, 
Saratoga, Monmouth, and Stony Point ; who had twice received 
promotion for bravery in t)i<i field, and who had repeatedly received 
the thanks of Washington and of Congress — this man was convicted 

1893.] William Hull. 311 

of cowardice and neglect of duty, by a body of judges, most of whom 
were wholly unacquainted with war. The mere statement of the 
facts would seem to be enough to show the injustice of the verdict, 
but for political reasons it was approved by Madison. 

What has been trie verdict of history on these transactions? The 
n-arbled accounts and falsifications of the government organs of the 
dav, which have been copied by partizan writers and compilers of 
school books, are not history ; but what is said by. writers who care- 
fully investigate causes and effects and consult public documents? 

Although General Hull applied to every administration for copies 
of his papers, it was not until 1824 that his requests were attended 
to, when John 0. Calhoun, then Secretary of War, ordered copies 
of all documents relating to General Hull's campaign to be made 
for him. Several important papers, known to have been in the 
office, were however missing. From such as could be obtained 
General Hull prepared and published his rf Memoirs of the Campaign 
of the North "Western Army of the United States, A.D. 1812," 
which, wherever read, generally turned the tide of opinion in his 
favor. Jared Sparks, in the North American Review, January, 
1825, writes as follows: 

We have no disposition to revive a suhject which for the credit of the 
country had better be forgotten, yet if we were to judge simply by the pub- 
lic documents collected and published in these memoirs, we must draw the 
conclusion, unequivocally, that General Hull was required by the general 
government to do what it was morally and physically impossible that he 
should do ; that he was surrounded by difficulties which no human agency 
could conquer; and whatever may have been his mistakes of judgment in 
any particular movement, he deserved not the unqualified censure inflicted 
on him by the court martial. 

Benson J. Lossing, in his fr Field Book of the War of 1812," 
page 295, writes : 

Hull had warned the government of the folly of attempting the conquest 
of Canada without better preparation, but the President and his cabinet, 
lacking all the essential knowledge for planning a campaigu, had sent him 
ou an errand of vast importance and difficulty, without seeming to compre- 
hend its vastuess, or estimating the necessary means. The conception of 
the campaign was a huge blunder, and Hull saw it; and the failure to nun 
in vigorous motion means for his support — was criminal neglect. \\ hen 
the result was found to he failure and humiliation, the administration sought 
a refuge. Public indignation must be appeased. General Hull was made 
the chosen victim for the peace offering, and the sin-bearing scape-goat. 

J. PI. Patton, in his History of the United States, p. 5S8, writes : 

The difficulties of Hull's position was very great, and perhaps, while no 
one doubted his personal courage, he wanted that sternness of soul so 
necessary to a successful commander. Those in authority screened them- 
selves by making the unfortunate general the scope .'. >at for their blunders, 
iQ sending him with a force and means so inadequate. 

312 William Hull. [July, 

The remarks of Henry Adams on the desperate position of Gen- 
eral Hull's army at Detroit have already been quoted. The latest 
historian of that war, Prof. McMaster, has this to say, vol. 3d, p. 
$59, History of the United States : 

He (Hull) was indeed a hardly used man. Not he, but Madison. Eustis 
and Dearborn were to blame. Had the administration carried out the plan 
of attack; bad Canada been vigorously invaded at the same moment from 
Detroit, from Niagara, from Sackett's Harbor, and from about Champlain, 
Brock could not have concentrated his forces about Maiden, and Hull could 
not have been captured at Detroit. 

Only a few months after the sentence of the court martial. Gen- 
eral Hull met with a greater misfortune in the los3 of his only son, 
Captain Abraham Fuller Hull of the Ninth Infantry, who fell in 
the battle at Lundy's Lane, July IS 14, while leading his company 
in a bayonet charge on the enemy's guns. 

Among the many falsehoods published by the government papers, 
was the statement that Detroit had been sold by General Hull for 
British gold, and that wagon loads of it had been heard in the night- 
going to his house in Newton. He was in fact a poor man. When 
he went to Detroit in 1805, as governor, he invested most of his 
means in a house and lands in that village. After leaving Detroit, in 
1812, he was obliged to sell his property there at a sacrifice. Large 
arrears of salary were due him for years, and the advances which 
he had made for the equipment of the Ohio militia were never repaid 
to him, owing to the loss of his vouchers by the capture of the vessel 
at Maiden. He had little left except a farm in Newton, which he 
held in right of his wife. 

This farm of 300 acres was part of the tract of 1000 acres bought 
by John Fuller in 1644, in the northwest part of Newton, known as 
the ''Fuller Farm." When in 1680 his son Joseph married Lydia, 
daughter of Edward Jackson of Newton, the bridegroom was endowed 
with 200 acres of this farm by his father, and the bride with 20 acres 
by her father. On this 20 acres their house was built, and stood 
till about 1814, when it was replaced by one built by "William Hull; 
this was removed after the place was sold in 1830, and the site is 
now occupied by the residence of Governor Claflin. The great elm 
still standing near the house was planted by Joseph Fuller 200 years 

Upon this farm General Hull maintained his family, and by 
skillful cultivation, by the use of irrigation and fertilizers, he raised 
good crops. He was one of the first in Massachusetts to feed his 
cattle and sheep on ruta bagas, and to get a hundred bushels of 
corn from an acre of ground. He was seldom seen abroad, but had 
many visitors from among the best people of his vicinity, and his 
old comrades of the revolution. His farm was the happy resort 
of his daughters and their children, and the General never looked 
so happy as when he was calling his grandchildren to partake of 

1893.] William Hull. 313 

one of his big water-melons, or having the chestnuts shaken from 
his great trees for them to gather. 

In the last visit of Lafayette to America lie visited General Hull, 
and the meeting (witnessed by the writer) of these veteran soldiers 
of the revolution was interesting. The Marquis embraced his old 
comrade, and said, among other words of gracious welcome: "We 
have both suffered contumely and reproach, but our characters are 
vindicated ; let us forgive our enemies and die in Christian peace 
and love with all mankind." Gen. Cobb, Gen. Huntington, Gen. 
Putnam, and other old soldiers, were present at this interview, which 
took place at the house of Gen. Hull's son-in-law, Mr. Isaac Mc- 
Lellan, in Winthrop Place, Boston. After the presentation of Gen. 
Hull's daughters and their children to the Marquis, the two old 
companions in arm.- took their last farewell. 

After the publication of General Hull's vindication in 1824, a 
public dinner was given him in Boston by his fellow citizens of both 
political parties, to express their esteem and respect for him. It 
was held at the Exchange Coffee House, on Monday, May 30, 
1825. A long account of the dinner was given in the Columbian 
Centinel, June 1. It shows that the leading men of both parties 
were prominent on that occasion. William Sullivan presided, with 
Major Daniel Jackson. Josiah Bacon, Jonathan limine well, Francis 
Green, Benjamin Russell, Robert Williams, George Brinley, Henry 
Purkett, John K. Simpson, and David Henshaw, vice-presidents. 
Rev. Dr. Homer of Newton invoked the blessing, and Rev. Dr. 
Francis of Watertown returned thanks. Toast, by William Sulli- 
van : " General Hull ; let public opinion and history take charge 
of recent events, while we render honor to the Soldier of the Revo- 
lution." Toast, by Gen. Hull: "The highest tribunal of our coun- 
try ; our enlightened and independent fellow citizens." Toast, by 
David Henshaw: " The public voice ; Americans are too honest to 
sacrifice the innocent to screen the guilty." 

Not long after this testimonial, General Hull visited his native 
town of Derby, Conn., where he was received with attention, and a 
public dinner was given him by his old friends and fellow towns- 
men. The fatigues of this journey brought on disease, and he died 
at his house in Newton on the 29th of November, 1825, aged 72.

was much beloved. To the last, he maintained that he had done his 
duty at Detroit, and he believed that his countrymen would event- 
ually do him justice. 

His grandson, James Freeman Clarke, writes : "As a boy, I used 
often to visit his house, and nothing could be more cheerful, kindly 
and attractive, than his whole manner. I never saw a cloud on his 
brow ; I never heard a harsh word from his lips. Nothing in his

General Hull was a man of medium height, of ruddy complexion, 
slender and active in youth, but rather corpulent in age ; of accom- 
plished manners, and of appearance dignified and commanding. He 
had in youth associated with Washington and his generals, and in 
later life with the leading men of Massachusetts and Xew Fork. 
Governor George Clinton was his particular friend, and had warned 
him against accepting military command under Madison's adminis- 
tration. "For," said he, "they will betray and abandon you." But 
General Hull, trusting and sanguine in temper, could not believe in 
treachery among his old military associates, and paid dearly for his 

He showed his unselfish temper when, in 1775, in joining the 
army, he declined taking any part of his father's estate, saving : " I 
want nothing but my uniform and my sword"; when in 1780 he 
declined the very desirable appointment of aid to General Washing- 
ton, because he was convinced that he could be of more service to 
his country in another position ; and finally in LSI 2, when he sacri- 
ficed himself to what he believed to be his duty to the people of

We know of no Man of that Name, yet doubtless we shall be able when 
we arrive at Boston to understand who it is that hath perpetrated so vile 
an Action, and shall readily use Our Interest that the Man may be brought 
to Justice. 

• The Action as Represented by You is detestable, and ought not to be 
Countenanced by any Government, especially by those that profess Christi- 

Whether You are rightly informed of the Facts we shall not be able to 
Judge until we hear what the Man can say for himself. We should more 
readily conclude that the Relation of the Action made to you was reall if 
We were assured that the French Man from whom you had it was not a 
Gainer by the War. But if you can produce Wrote Letters your Mes- 
sengers inform us were sent on shear by the Officer you Mention it will 
enable the Governments to convict him of his perfidious Dealing. 

We do assure you that no vessell hath been sent by the Governments to 
Penobscot or thereabouts with a Flagg. of Truce, and if any Man hath pre- 
tended to Set up such a Signal, he hath done it of his own mere Motion, 
which is an Abuse ottered to the Governments, and tends to bring the pub-

I have the Hon r of y rr Letter of the 29 th of June last, And cann't 
but be surprized at the Exceptions you take At y rr not being Advised of 
the two sloops fitted out here to cruize the Eastern Coast of this Province, 
since, at the Time of their Departure, Your Arrival in these Parts was not 
known here. Nor have you since, till on this Occasion, thought tit to Notify 
Me thereof. Or of y" having his Majesties Commission for L r Gov 1 " of Nova 
Scotia, W ch I think would have been but agreeable to the Practice amongst 
Gentlemen in our Station & your Intentions expressed in your Letter, W ch , 
duly considered, would have left no Room for Censuring me as wanting in 
Complaisance & Friendship. And you may assure y rr self Nothing shall be 
wanting on my Part to maintain a good Neighbourhood. & for Acting in 
Concert with you in such Matters as concern his Majesties Service & the 
mutual Advantages of the two Provinces, so long as I have the Hon 1 " to 
serve his Majesty in this Station. 

I have communicated y" Lett r to his Maj ie3 Council of this Prov. & have 
taken their Opinion as to those Articles in it that are of a more publick 
Concern. And, with their Advice, I now inform you. That sometime in 
June last divers Indians of Penobscot came into the Fort at S f Georges, 
under a Flagg of Truce, And in their Discourse with the Officers there 
manifested their Inclination to Peace & their Desire that some Gent, might 
be sent from this Govern m l to confer further with them on that Subject. 
In Compliance with w ch Oc at the Motion of the Gen 11 Assembly, I sent 
two Gent, to S { Georges, with Instructions (of which you have a Copy en- 
closed). They mett a considerable Number of Indians, who all express'd 
their Disposition to Peace, And sent two of their Chief Men to Boston to 
ask a Cessation of Arms till they could get all their People together & 
engage the Neighbouring Tribes to act in Concurrence with them in Send- 
ing their Delegates to Boston to make their Submission to his .Majesty, & 
agree upon Articles of Pacification. The Issue of our Conferences with 
these two Men was our Granting them a"J Cessation in all Parts to the 
Eastw d of Kennebeck River, for the space of Forty Days from the Landing 
of these Messengers at their Return, As you will see by the s d Conferences 
w ch I have also enclosed. What further Intelligence I may have of the 
Dispositions & Intentions of the Indians as to this Affair, I shall communi-

If you think it will be for his Majesties service & for the Benefit of y rr 
Governmeir to send y rr Deputies to this Treaty We shall be very glad of 
♦.heir Assistance therein. 

We thank you for the Regard you express for the Interests of this Prov.

this Governm' might act in Concert with yon for the Safeguard of the 
Subjects of both Provinces. Bui forasmuch as our Treaty with the Penob. 
Indians is (in all Probability) so near, And y ns at Annapolis so distant & 
uncertain, We have not concluded to send any Deputies to appear for us 
at Annapolis, Confiding in your wise & successful Managem' of that Affair, 
And that you will have a Regard to the Interests of his Majesties Subjects 
in Gen' 1 as well as of your own Province, &, at the same time, We promise 
you so have the like Care of the Governm 1 & People of Nova Scotia in our 
Treaty with the Indians here. As to your Proposal for sending 60 Indians 
to join with your Force to strike a Terror into the Enemy, We should very 
cheerfully comply with this Motion but for some invincible Difficulties that 
ly in the Way of it, For besides, That our Charter absolutely forbids the 
Marching any of the Inhabitants out of the Limits of the Prov. without 
their free & voluntary Consent, or the Consent of the General Assembly 
(who are not sitting at this Time) It will be esteem'd a Breach of our 
Truce with the Penob, Indians If we sh d March an arm'd Force into any 
Part of Nova Scotia. As to the Supplys given to the French in y rr Neigh- 
bourhood, This Governm' have it much at Heart & would be glad to come 
into any proper Measures to prevent that Trade. And I have not been 
wanting in my Endeavours to yet prevent that order pass'd for that Pur- 
pose, but unless the Government of New Hampshire, Rhode Island & Con- 
necticut from whence the greatest Part of the Supplies go, will y>\n with 
us in this Affair, Nothing that We can do will be effectual. And for the 
Members of his Majesties Council I have no Reason to suspect that any of 
them are concern'd in this Mischievious Trade.* I have nothing further to

[Mr. Drake (Book of the Indians, page 332, 11th edition, 1851), says, that 
" Wenarnovet," as he writes his name, "or, as is sometimes spelled, Wenog- 
gonet" one of the Abenaki Indians, '• appears not to have been a war chief, or 
in any other way very conspicuous, except as councillor/' He was a cousin 
and successor, as Mr. Drake informs us, of the celebrated Madokawando, who 
died in 1698; one of whose daughters married the liaron De Castine, by whom 
he had several children. Though Wenemonet was in reality chief, we are in- 
formed that he " was willing to let ' tierce Moxus ' bear his well-earned title of 
chief in all matters of war." A rotable exploit of the latter was the capture 
of Peinaquid, 2d of August, IGS9. (See page 31G.)]

324 Letter of Robert Washington. [Jul 


Communicated by J. M. Toner, M.D., of Washington, D. C. 

Tiie continued interest everywhere in the stud}' of the history 
and early Washington emigrants to Virginia, induces me to send you 
the following literal copy of a letter by Robert Washington, which 
was printed in John Dixon's Virginia Gazette of July 29. 17 75. 
I am not specially proficient in a knowledge of the several members of 
the early Washington families in Virginia, but this name is almost 
wholly unknown to me ; the letter is well written, and shows the 
author of it to have been a military man much of his life. Some of 
your readers may be able to indicate who the person was, and how 
related to the other branches of the Washington family. 

To the Print eiis. 
Gentlemen, I asi a Man who has spent some Part of ray Life between 
the Barracks and Camp, therefore have contracted a natural Love for Mili- 
tary Parade. To indulge my Foible. I went the other Day to see one of 
your Independent Companies go through the Prussian Exercise, as they 
called it; when, behold, al! that I saw was their forming six deep, by the 
Rear Half Files facing to the Right about, and marching eighteen Paces to 
the Rear. This, with rest, order, open your Files to the Right and Left, 
with the slow Parade Motions of prime and load, was (as I understood) to 
constitute the Whole, and you may call it Prussian Exercise if you please- 
but, if I have any Judgment, it is meer Burlesque on all Exercise. Upon 
inquiry, why the regular Prussian Discipline was not adopted, I was told, 
by the Man that was to teach them, that lie could not tell off a Battalion ; 
that is, he could not put them through their Firings. If this he the Case, as 
I have great Reason to helieve it is (not only so with that Company, but 
many others in the Colony) that many who pretend to teach the Prussian 
Exercise never saw a Battalion told off in their Lives, according to the 
Prussian Method of firing, and, if they did, their low stations in the Hanks 
rendered it impossible for them ever to know any Thing but what belongs to 
their own Sub or Grand Division : If so what must those Companies propose 
to themselves by the Mode of Exercise they have adopted, in Case of 
Emergency. Each Company might be formed into a Battalion, and to lead 
a Body of brave men with such countertit Discipline, to face a disciplined 
Enemy, would, in my Opinion, be downright Murder. Let us not Plume 
ourselves with this Conceit, that we shall always have the Bush to fight be- 
hind; for, in the different Services of war in this Country, there will be 
Passes to be guarded or forced, Bridges to be crossed or defended, Trenches 
to be guarded or stormed, Streets to be cleared, and Sometimes Squares to 
be formed ; in all of which Cases bushing it would be of little or no Vsa ; and 
to send undisciplined troops on such Service would be absurd indeed. The 
native Courage of the Americans, and their Knowledge of the Woods, with 
an early Use ot Fire-Arms, has rendered them superior in the Woods' to any 
Troops in Europ; and if under regular Discipline, might be as famous in 
the Field. But it may be observed, and said, we want Men of Knowledge

in such Cases to instruct us. First clear yourselves of those Caterpillars 
that poison the Military Blossoms of your first Endeavours, and leave only a 
sniokv Webful of Excrements behind. Next, advise those bookish 
Theorists to lay by their Christ-Cross-Row; for he that learns the Trade of 
War I)}- Book will find himself to seek when on actual Service. Then 
L'iv< ! proper Encouragement to Men of Abilities (for such there are amongst 
ye) who may lay a Foundation for ye that may make ye one Day or other 
become as great in Arms as Rome of old. Knowing I must rise or fall 
with this Country in the general Struggle for Liberty, were I to lie dormant 
on the Occasion, I should count myself highly culpable; for the gracious 
Acceptance of the poor Widow's Offering emboldens me to cast in my Mite. 
My Station when in the Army in Europe, last War, rendered it necessary 
for me to be thoroughly acquainted with all Parts of the Prussian Infantry 
and Artillery Exercise ; I therefore freely offer my poor Service to the 
Public. Those Gentlemen who choose to employ me may hear of me by 
directing a Line to the Care of Mr. Edmund Day of Southampton, or Mr. 
Elisha Copeland of Nansemond County, for 

The Public's humble servant, 

Robert Washington.

11. Zenas 5 Crane (Stephen* Benjamin? Stephen, 2 Henry 1 ), born May 9, 
1777; living so hear the mill, where much of the activity of the town 
centered, must have passed many of his boyish days in wandering 
about its yard and watching the different parts of the work, and 
thus gained knowledge which prepared him to enter his brother's 
mill at Newton; thence he went to a mill in Worcester, Mass., which 
was under the control of a very exact and efficient manager, General 

Having perfected himself in the work and its principles, and 
studied its needs, in the summer of 1799, he, being in a position to 
establish himself independently, left Worcester, and searched for a 
fitting site for his project to build a mill for himself. Crossing the 
Hoosac mountains, he reached the "waters of the upper Housatonic 
river and its branches. Here he passed his first night in Berkshire; 
sleeping at a small, wayside inn near the border line between Dulton 
and Pittsfield. 

ki He had reached a region of superb natural beauty * 
In the town of Dalton, near the centre of the famous Berkshire hills, 
lies a sheltered valley through which flows the largest of the eastern

Here. Dec. 5, 1801, a deed conveyed to Henry Wiswall, Zenas 
Crane and Daniel Gilbert over fourteen acres of land with a paper 
mill, in which, up to this time, there had been a daily production of 
one hundred and twenty-five sheets of paper, and which became 
known as the ik Old Berkshire Mill." Here the partners worked 
together until 1807, when Zenas Crane sold his share and tried a 
venture in mercantile life; but, in 1810, he resumed the paper 
making interest, first as superintendent and chief manager of a firm 
of four partners, of which he was one; then, in 1820, buying out 
the others and taking sole control. 

Hampered by the strong prejudice for foreign products, he toiled 
steadily on. overcoming many obstacles, studying the improvement 
and perfection of his processes until 1842, in which year he transferred 
his interests to his sons, Zenas Marshall and James Brewer, who, 
favored by conditions and circumstances, held the " Old RvA Mill," 
as it was termed, until it was burned in 1870, when they built a 
finer and larger mill of stone, and became the bank-note paper 
makers of the United States; their specialty being the making of 
paper for government purposes, bonds, certificates, treasury notes 
and bank bills. 

"In 1846, Zenas Marshall Crane was much inclined to inventing 
methods of improving and raising the art .... ft occured to him 
at that time that the introduction into the fibre of silk threads repre- 
senting the denomination of bills by their number would prevent 

counterfiting Conservative men discouraged Mr. Crane, so 

that he did not apply for a patent Nearly twenty years 

after practical men at the head of financial affairs of the 

nation deemed it expedient to adopt essentially the plan devised by 
Mr. Crane .... An Englishman appeared at Washington with a 
claim as patentee."* But Mr. Crane's claim was fully established 
by some of the home banks which had retained copies of their trial 
of his design. 

Zenas Crane married Nov. 30, 1809, Lucinda, daughter of Gains 
and Lucretia (Babcock) Brewer, of Wilbraham, Mass., who died 
May 2, 1872, aged 84 years; he died June 20, 1845. They had

Mr. James Brewer Crane bequeathed $20,000 to the town of

equal sum to tl i Is, and caused to be built a Town Hall of blue 
granite, pressed brick and Longmeadow brownstone, which contains, 
besides town offices, a museum, a spacious library, to which the Crane 
■ family gave " the entire collection of books now in the Crane library, 
to be catalogued and used by the free public Library,"* and a beauti-

the basement is a large hall for public purposes. 

12. Thomas 5 Crane (Joseph* Thomas, 3 Ebenezer, 2 Henry 1 ) was born at 

Braintree, Mass., May, 1770. Shortly after his marriage he re- 
moved to George's Island in Boston Harbor; an island bought, as 
valuable for its timber and grazing lands, by James Pemberton, as 
early as 1632. Its second owner was Samuel Greenleaf, whose 
daughter Hannah inherited it, and sold it to Elisha Leavitt of 
Hingham, Mass., in 1765; from him it passed to Caleb Rice, its 
owner when Thomas Crane took his abode there. On the sea side 
is a high bluff which was protected by a fine wall before Fort War- 
ren was built upon it. Here Mr. Crane lived with his little family, 
but, in 1810, bought a farm near his boyhood home on Quincy Point 
in "Old Fields," lying by Fore river and a stream still known as 
Crane's Brook. 

Like many another New England farm of the period, it was seif 
centered; the house standing aloof from the main travelled road, 
here a half a mile distant, but lying so in the heart of its acres that 
the thrifty farmer was in the midst of his fields and woods, and thus 
saved much wear and tear of body and machinery. Thus advantaged 
Mr. Crane became a prosperous, successful man ; but died before he 
had completed fifty years of life. 

Thomas Crane married Nov. 6, 1796, Sarah, daughter of Daniel 
and Prudence ( Spear j Baxter, who was born at liruintree, 1771, 
died Aug. 19, 1824; he died Sept. 25, 1818. They had children:

13. Thomas 5 Crane ( Thomas? Joseph, 4 Thomas, 3 Ebenczer? Henry 1 ), born 

on George's Island, Oct. 18, 180.3, well nurtured by the happy, 
healthful life at the Island and at Quincy Point, was a sturdy, well 
developed, resolute hid of fifteen years when his father's death 
changed the course of the family living. The "district school " had 
been four miles away from his home ; its advantages were but ni>. : ted,

He supplemented the lessons of its "cyphering school'* with ideas 
of his own, and invented for himself a book of problems which is 
held by his family ; its pages lined with exactness and filled with 
carefully developed examples. 

A change from the active, vigorous, open air life of a farmer's son 
to any indoor occupation could but be trying to him. and. naturally 
enough, he, a Quincy boy, saw his road to future fortune lying 
through the granite quarries, he directly began its foundation by 
learning the stone cutter's trade. But while his hands were thus 
busied, his mind was striving and searching. Of a deeply religious 
nature, he wrought out for himself a system of theology which 
could find its best exposition in the liberal thought of the Universalis 

The nearest place where he couM hear the discourses that were in 
sympathy with his conception was the church on School Street, Boston, 
where Rev. Hosea Ballon weekly stirred his adherents with his 
hearty, lively enunciation of his humane precepts. This church was 
some eighteen miles distant, ami there was no public conveyance be- 
tween the two towns at that early period. This did not deter 
Thomas Crane. Each Sabbath he quietly walked these eighteen 
miles; then, when the day was ended, had this long distance to cover 
before he could return to his weekly labors. Small wonder that 
such a youth should soon find his village home too narrow for his 
tireless energies. That was quickly outgrown, and an occasion offer- 
ing, he removed to New York city in 1829, where he immediately 
began work on stone. 

He soon joined an association of his craftsmen, and together they 
bought a stone-yard. His talents speedily carried him beyond his 
associates who could not appreciate his advanced ideas, and they 
made the whole yard over to him, as sole proprietor. As he became 
known in his profession, large contracts were iriveu to him. He 
furnished the granite for the 4'Jd Street Distributing Reservoir, the 
New York Custom House, St. John's Freight Depot, and the Grand 
Central Depot. This not o ily interested him in public constructions, 
but made him familiar with the city. He studied it attentively, and 
bought lauds where he foresaw its spread. This followed as he 
divined, and his capital increased rapidly, with it his power of 

But his own advancement was only one motor. The public well- 
being was his interest too. He became an active and efficient mem- 
ber of the Universalist Church to which Horace Greeley belonged, 
and Mr. Crane's sympathy with his advanced opinions and out- 
spoken convictions led to a firm friendship between these two 
strong men. At that time an anti-slavery man was not caressed by 
society, but Mr. Crane sturdily stated his fullest acceptance of the 
principles of that party and labored with it resolutely and 

When the Universalists agitated the subject of establishing a 
college for their own special tenets, he favored the project and gave 
substantial aid in founding Tufts College at Medford. Mass., accepting 
the office of Trustee, in which duty he spent much time, thought and 
money ail the rest of his life. 

As his clear judgment, sagacity, practical skill, shrewdness and

mental strength became known to his fellow citizens, he was sought 
for in various councils. He was elected in Banks, Street Railways 
and Insurance Companies, and was an important man in financial 

He ever kept a warm interest in his Quincy home, and although 
he developed a beautiful summer residence at Stamford. Cr., still he 
was fond of returning to the seashore where his healthful, happy 
boyhood was spent. In sympathy with this sentiment and in unison 
with bis regard for the highest interests of his fellow-beings, after 
his decease, bis widow and two sons, Benjamin F. and Albert, -ave 
to the town a beautiful library, known as the Crane Memorial Hall. 
There on the main street it stands, one of Richardson's finest de- 
signs, with its smooth, grassed approach, " in itself an education in 
art," as Mr. Charles Francis Adams so aptly said in bis address at 
its dedication. A beautiful building, with spacious, sunny rooms, 
illuminated by windows in which are some choice specimens of 
La Farge's works, where the books are fitly placed that are to be 
freely used by all who choose to call for them. A most fitting 
memory of the man who so highly employed ail the advantages the 
homely village afforded his own youth, that the " pot hooks arid 
trammels " of his early teachers became a graceful, flowing, bold 
writing of his own, and the "simple rule of three" advanced htm 
to the mastery of higher mathematics applied to religious living.

than a twelve-month ; he married 2d, in Boston, Mass., Nov. 23,

Note by the Editor of tiie Register. 

Mrs. Hannah Mather Crocker, author of "Observations on the Real Rights 
of Woman" and other works, was a daughter of Rev. Samuel and Mrs. Hannah 
(Hutchinson) Mai her, and a granddaughter of Rev. Cotton Mather, author of 
the " Magnalia." She -was born at Boston, June 27, 1752; married April 15, 
1789, Joseph Crocker, II. C. 1774. born Feb. 24. 1740, died Nov. 13, 1707. She 
died at Roxbury, July 10, 1S29. Her descent from John 1 Mather of Lancashire 
is through Thomas. 2 Rev. Richard 3 Mather of Dorchester, Rev. Increase. 4 Rev. 
Cotton, 5 and Rev. Samuel 6 Mather, her father. She left in manuscript a volume 
of " Reminiscences and Traditions of Boston," now in the possession of the 
New-England Historic Genealogical Society. From this volume we quote the 
following : 

" Mr. Richard Mather was born in Lancaster in a small village called Lowton 
in the year 1500. The family can be traced to John. Thomas was his son, and 
Richard was son of Thomas. 

" The chair in the Antiquarian room [i.e. the rooms of the American Anti- 
quarian Society, Worcester, Mass.] belonged to Thomas. Richard sat in it when 
a child. He was married in 1624 ; his children that were born in Europe sat in 
the chair before he came to this country — Samuel, Timothy, Nathaniel, Joseph. 
The last named sat in it, when he brought the chair to America. Eleazer and 
Increase were born in America. They both sat in the same chair. The chair 
descended to Increase, and all his children sat in the same. It came in line 
to Cotton Mather. His children all sat in the same. It descended to hi^ son 
Samuel, and his children sat in the same chair. His youngest daughter [Han- 
nah, the writer of these -notes] was the only child that had any children, and 
•she has had ten children sit in the chair, and several jnaudohildren.

" A§ the regular line of Mather has run out. she wished the chair to be de- 
posited ia the antiquarian rooms with the venerable shades, that those "who 
come after her ma\ look to the rock from whence they were hewn, and find an 
■ ii seat to rest any chip of the old block. As she flatters herself, there may 
at some future day a sprig spring from the root Jesse, and the tribe of Levi re- 
turn to their rest, v> hen she is at rest in another world."' 

Rev, Increase Mather, in his •• Life and Death of Mr. Kichard Mather" (Cam- 
bridge. 1670), says: '-There is in the Parish of Winwick. the County of Lan- 
caster, a small country town or village called Lowton, in which >-i 1 L-ilt' • Kichard 
Mather was born. Anno 1596. His parents, Thomas and Margaret Mather, were 
of- ancient families in Lowton aforesaid, but by reason of some unhappy mort- 
gages they were reduced to a low condition as to the World." lie does not give 
the name of the father of Thomas. 

His son, Rev. Cotton Mather, in his " Parentator : Remarkables of Increase 
Mather" (Boston. 1724-). does not give even the name of the father of Ri :h; •■■.:.

1 . Peter Aspinwall came from Toxteth Park, now a part of Liverpool, 
England, to New England about the year 1630. It is not known who 
were his parents. About this time (1630) there was living at Toxteth 
Park a Mr. Edward Aspinwall, who may have been the father of Peter 
Aspinwall. Pev. Richard Mather, when he first became a teacher at Tox- 
teth Park, lodged for a time with this Mr. Edward Aspinwall,f and it is 
more than likely that he there became acquainted with Peter Aspinwall, 
whether Peter was the son of Edward or not. It is a curious coincidence 
that three sons of Rev. Mr. Mather and Peter Aspinwall should have had 
the same names: Samuel, Nathaniel and Eleazer. 

For several years after coming to New Eugland Peter Aspinwall lived 
in Dorchester: and while there, in May 1645, he was made a ik freeman "; 
and, probably while living there, was married to Alice Sharp. An entry in 
the Parish Register of The First Church of Boston records: " Also o r sister 
Alice Sharp now y e wife of one Peter Aspinwall of Dorchester had Ires of 
RecoLfiend granted unto her to y e Church at Dorchester." "The 8 J day of 
y* 4 tb Monetb 1645." 

Mr. Lewis Tappan, a son-in-law of Doctor William Aspinwall of Brook- 
line, Mass., wrote in his diary under date February 2, 1818, the substance

of what Dr. Aspinwall had told him relating to his (Dr. Aspinwall's) 

family, a part of which is as follows: 

Dr. Aspinwall informs me that his ancestors lived in Dorchester before they 
came to Brooklme. Dr. A. showed me the original deed of the family estate 
in Brooklin'e. • It is given by William Colebonie to Peter Aspinwall, dated 14 (9) 
10.">O. it is in the handwriting of William Aspinwall, Recorder or Register of 
Deeds in Boston at that time. One of the witnesses to the deed was Humphrey 
Athertcm, a Major General, and notable character, as appears by an inscription 
on his crave stone in Dorchester. 

Peter A. built his house (1660) as you go from Dr. A.'s old barn to brick- 
yard, in the tipper corner of the hollow". 

Dr. William Aspinwall wrote, Sept. 16, 17G7, a sketch of his ancestors 
and their children, from which extracts will be given in their appropriate 
places. In this sketch he writes of Peter Aspinwall: 

He married Morrill and lived with her 16 years without children, when 

she died; and then he married Remember Palfrey. 

" Peter Aspinwall of Muddy River & Remember Palfrey of Redding 
were married 12 th February 1661 by John Endecott Governor." She was 
the daughter of Peter and Edith Palfrey of Salem. She was baptized 16 
September, 16SS. 

The house which Peter Aspinwall built and lived in is still standing 
(1800). It is on Aspinwall Avenue, near St. Paul's Church, Brookline, 

Peter Aspinw-all held several town offices: among them that of Surveyor. 
during the years 1651-2, and 1661-2; and Constable in 1667. lie was 
appointed, April 21, 1676. with two other of his townsmen, a committee 
for the "preventinge of excessive drinkinge & disorder in private houses"; 
and was elected. 2.3 March, 1677-8, *• to oversee oc regulate the lleuces 
about the comon ffield at Muddy River." 

The date of Peter Aspinwall's death is not known. His will is dated 29 
November, 1687; and the inventory of his estate bears date " 9 deseni r 
1687," and was filed 20 January, 1691-2; at which time his widow and son 
Samuel presented his will for probate.* 

The date of his widow's death is not recorded, but it was before 4 April, 
1701. Children: 

Samuel, 2 b. 4 November, 1662.

(Palfrey) Aspinwall, was horn in Muddy River, or Brookline. Mass., 

10 November, \0t)2. He was a farmer, and the leading man of his 
day in town affairs. lie was an office holder nearly ail his life. 
He was e!eeted Surveyor in 1690-1. Afterwards he was chosen 
Constable. Assessor, Fence-Viewer, Tythingman and Selectman — 
this last office he held at least thirteen years, between 1 699 and 
1718. He was also elected to view the town's treasurer's accounts; 
to a committee to make a new pound; to choose a burying place; 
"to manage the concern or affair of building" a meeting-house; "to 
seat the meeting-house"; "to treat with Mr James Allin who was 
chosen to be (our) gospell minister 7 '; and was appointed guardian 
to orphan minors, etc. 

He went as a lieutenant of militia in the expedition against Port 
Royal in the year 1690, and was present when Sir William Phips 
took the fort. He was afterwards chosen captain of the Brookline 
company of militia. 

The following extract is from Lewis Tappan's Diary: — 

" Some one recollected, and told his grandson, Dr. William Aspinwall, 
of Capt. Sam'l Aspinwall notifying his company, on the public parade 
in Roxbury, to meet on a certain day to see about building a meeting- 
house in Brookline. He made the bricks to fill in the old meeting house. 
When it was taken down Dr. Wm. Aspinwall purchased these bricks, 
and filled the walls of the west room of his new house with them. Capt. 
Aspinwall also built the school house which stood on Esq. Sharp's land, 
nearly opposite the present school house in the lane leading to the 
Cambridge road. 

He was of great strength. There is an anecdote related of him show- 
ing the presence and firmness of his mind. At a tavern on Boston Neck 
there was a lion kept which was tamed for exhibition. Some persons 
thought they might frighten Capt. Aspinwall with the animal. He had 
never seen a lion, and was conducted to his apartment, when at the 
management of his keeper the animal sprang upon him. putting his fore 
paws upon his breast, making a tremendous roaring. Capt. Aspinwall 
merely said, ' What is the matter with the beast? '" 

This lion was advertised for exhibition in The Boston News Letter, 
March 31 to April 7, 1718, as follows: 

" All Persons having the Curiosity of seeing the noble and Royal 
Beast the Lyon, never one before in America, may see him at the House 
of Capt. Arthur Savage near Mr. Colman's Church, Boston, before he is 
transported for London. But to prevent all disputes with the negro at 
the Gate who constantly attends each Person (whether seen him before 
or not) is desired to pay to the said Negro six pence a piece." 

" Capt. Aspinwall planted the great elm tree (Aspinwall elm)."

time, and saw him (S.A.) carry it in his hand and set it out. Clark 
was then about 10 years old."* 

"The New York Aspimvalls proceeded from Samuel Aspinwall's 
brother Joseph. "f 

Capt. Aspinwall " married Sarah Stevens, sister to old Capt. Stevens, 
father to the late Dr. Warreu'sJ mother."§ 

Samuel Aspinwall married, about 1689. Sarah, daughter of Capt. 
Timothy and Sarah (Davis) Stevens of Roxbury, Mass. She was 
born G March, 16G7, and died 1 April. 1710, arid was buried in the 
old Roxbury grave-yard near the graves of her parents. 

Samuel Aspinwall was drowned G September, 1727. "At his 
family devotions that morning he read the 27th chapter of Proverbs, 
beginning with ' Boast not thyself of tomorrow; for thou knowest 
not what a day may bring forth."' |j 

The New England Weekly Journal, Boston, September 11, 1727, 
prints the following from a Brookline correspondent: 

" On Wednesday last the 6th currant Capt. Samuel Aspinwall of this 
place and three others went out in a canoe to a place where they might 
gather oyster shells, and leaving the company was coming to the shore 
alone in the. canoe, but meeting with a paddle that stuck up in the mud 
he attempted to draw the same out but .finding it difficult the tyde being 
against him, and unawares pitched over the canoe in the water and was 
drowned. He was seen to rise once and no more and no help could be 
afforded him .... They went to find him that night but could not. 
The next morning about 8 they found him not far from the place where 
he was drowned, and on Saturday he was decently interred. The Com- 
pany he was late Captain of being in arms. He was a man well be- 
loved among its and his death is much lamented by all that knew him." 

The children of Capt- Samuel and Sarah (Stevens) Aspinwall, were:

brother Peter Aspinwall, for £80, eighty-four acres of land lying 
hi Killingly, Cone. He sold it back to his brother "20 December, 
1728; and it is more than probable that he never occupied the farm, 
but bought it on speculation.* 

No records of the marriages and death of Joseph Aspinwall, or 
records of either of his wives have been found; nor records of the 
births of his children or of their names. 

Dr. William Aspinwall wrote that Joseph Aspinwall was "ex- 
ceedingly careless of his childrens affairs." John Aspinwall, mer- 
chant, of New York City, was one of his children, for Dr. Aspinwall 
said that " the New York Aspinwalls proceeded from Samuel Aspin- 
wall's brother Joseph"; and it seems most probable that Joseph 
Aspinwall of Dedham and Stoughton, Mass., was another son. Both 
John and Joseph Aspinwall were Episcopalians, and their father 
was Episcopalian enough to contribute towards building a steeple on 
Trinity Church, New York City. Children: 

i. John. 3 
ii. Joseph. 

Note by the Editor. — Mr. Bowen, the compiler of this article, has 
prepared a MS. volume entitled "A Record of the Aspinwall Family of 
Muddy River, now Brookline. Mass. ; " which he has deposited with the 
New-England Historic Genealogical Society. The record is brought; down 
to the present century. The preceding article is extracted from that 

KJr" In the ''Gleanings" which Mr. "Waters contributes to this number of 
the Register, will be found abstracts of the wills of several English Aspin- 
walls and their kindred. There is littie doubt but that they were related to the 
Massachusetts immigrants. 



Communicated by J. Henry Lea, Esq. 

In the opening sentence of the article with this title, in the Regis- 
ter for July, lc5 ( J2, page 257, the writer, by a transposition of dates, 
makes the statement that Rev. Nicholas Street was matriculated at 
Oxford, 21 Feb. 162-4-5 ; as a matter of fact this was the dine of 
his passing the degree of B.A., while his matriculation at the age 
of 18 years was 2 Nov. 1621. These dates are correctly given in 
the Tabular Pedigree on the opposite page, but the error in the text 
unfortunately escaped him in reading the proofs. 

For the following items he is indebted to his friend Mr. A. J.

Communicated by A. D. Weld French, Esq., of Boston. 

Guilford, Conn., July 15, 1800. 
Dear Sir : 

As you requested last winter, I have had copied all the notes of 
my grandfather [Hon. Ralph D. Smith] on the family of Thomas 
French, and have searched the records to see if anything concerning 
him had been overlooked. I am glad to have been able to be of 
service. I am sincerely yours, 

Bernard C. Steiner. 
To A. D. Weld French, 

Boston, Mass. 

Thomas French was among the earliest settlers of Guilford. His name 
is net on the plantation covenant. At the commencement of Town Records, 
vol. A, page 1, under date August 14, 1645, is the following record: " Mr. 
Samuel Dishrow." [Richard Bristow erased.] "Tho: Betts members of 
ye church " "Thos: French Planter took their oath." Charged agt. John 
Stone member of ye church ye particulars which he confest. 

Savage says: "Thomas French, Charlestowu 1638, removed to Guilford 
1G50 or earlier." He probably came to Guilford about 1643. 

At the General Court or Meeting held the 20 th of February 1649-50, 

* Having no permission to make abstracts, I examined the record of this will and at a 
later date made a memorandum of its contents, hence the uncertainty. I think also that 
John E.eyner was tii-i tVtlici .-■ wot John Bachelor of Ame.*bury, Wilts, who died after 
L588 and before Vcu. 23, lo'j , .. hen his (Bachelor's) will was proved at London. The will 
can be found at the Principal Probate Registry. 
VOL. XLVII. 31* 

358 Thomas French of Guilford, Ct. [July, 

when Mr Whitfield's reasons were tendered to the church here [at Guil- 
ford] for his removal and read in public & enquiry made of every man in 
particular concerning his ability in paying to the ministers for the present 
and probability to continue according to ordinary Providence. Thomas 
French said he should be able co continue his present sum & said further 
he was willing to add 6 S. per annum. 

It, is probable that Mr. John CaiSnge, when he left Guilford in the latter 
part of 1643, or beginning of 1644, got Thomas French to occupy his estate 
at 'Guilford. Mr. Caffinch sued French, April 1, 1651, at New Haven, 
for the use of his house, land and cattle at Guilford. Probably French 
took them when Mr. Caffinch left that place. II. New Haven Col. Pec. 

At a court Feb. 5. Anno 1651-2. Thomas French was called and ad- 
monished for saying in a clamourous & scandalizing way "yt he nor his 
family were not relieved according to their need — nor yt he could get any 
corn in the town for pay unless he came and offered them half so much 
more as it was worth, but when he did so, then they had corn enough for him, 
otherwise not. wherefore he was forced [to] go out of the town to get corn 
for his family" — or words to that effect. To winch he acknowledged that 
this was only true of particular persons. The court out of tenderness to 
his family pass it over, at present, with an admonition, to take more heed 
to his carriage reports & speeches. 

At a court May 3, 1 Goo, he had two suits with John Everts with regard 
to hoggs, which w r ere eventually arranged. 

At a town meeting on ye 23 d of June 1665 Tho: French propounding 
in way of Petition to the town to have some relief on account of his daughter 
who was not wright in her own mind. "When the town considered the 
request, It was put to vote & the vote passed in the negative, — That they 
did not see themselves engaged either to him or his & therefore did expect 
he slid, be returned to the place whence he came. 

And at a Town Meeting August 21, 1665. The town being informed yt 
notwithstanding Thomas French had been defied entertainment or admit- 
tance into this town either for himself or his daughter — yet he had hired 
lands of Benjn. Wright to settle on, — They did agree by vote as a preven- 
tion of him yt whosoever did any longer entertain either of them should 
give in sufficient security that they should be no damage to the town. 

These votes are now inexplicable. Thomas French had been a planter 
for 20 years, had owned lands in the town, and was a man of property. 
This Thos. French w r as probably another man, or else the daughter was 
married to another man. 

A Terryer of the lands belonging to Thomas French in Guilford as fol- 
lowith viz. 1 Prop. Ii. fol, 19. 

Imps. One Home lot containing three acres & a halfe, more or less so 
allowed ffrontiug up to the Green by the Pound running back to the land 
of William Chittenden on the west, along by the rears of the Home lots of, 
Edward Benton, Jaiob SheatTe & in part of Will™ Chittenden on the north 
the Home lots of Henry Goldam on the south. About 1650 he sold this 
lot to Thomas Stevens, son of John Stevens, and bought the homelot of 
Henrj Dowde in Crooked Lane, described as follows, I. Prop. R. fol. 7. 

Imps. One Home lot fronting to the street on the East & rearing back 
to the Home lot of John Stevens, bounded on the South with the home lot 
of John Mepharn & on the North with the Home lot of Thomas Norton 
[then or John Norton &. William Seward, Thomas dying in 10-16] allowed 
for 2 acres more or le.-:s. 

1895.] Thomas French of Guilford, Ct. 359 

This last lot had been sold by Henry Dowde to Samuel Blachley about 
1647 who sold it to Thomas French who sold it to William Boreman about 
1656. Boreman died 1661, and his representatives sold it to Nathan Brad- 
lev about 1663, and Bradley sold it to John Chittenden Mav 20, 1G67. 
See I. Prop. Ree. fol. 19. 

"Thomas French hath sold and alienated all his houseing and house lot 
which he bought of Samuel Blachley as abovesaid unto William Boreman" 
& I, Prop. Ree. fol. 14. 

"William Boreman hath with conseut of ye Court bought all Thomas 
French his houseing and house lot which was late Samuel Blachleys " & 
also same fol. 

Henry Dowde & William Seward & Nathan Bradley (who had bought 
the whole estate of William Boreman, deceased) have sold and alienated 
the house & home lot containing about 2 acres unto Nathan Bradley of Guil- 
ford Jan. 18, 1663. who sold it to John Chittenden as stated above May 
20, 1607. 

The following entry is on the last page of I. Prop. R. fol. last Feb. 14 
(55) Thomas French & William Boreman entered an alienation upon an 
exchange made betwixt them viz. The said French hath given & granted 
in exchange all his rights in the upland and meadow to be divided at Atham- 
monassock unto the said William Boreman & his heirs etc for &r in con- 
sideration of the said Boremans now home lot with all his land there adjoin- 
ing to the said Thomas French & his heirs forever. 

Item one Home lot bought of Samuel Blachley late the lands of Henry 
Dowde lying next the house lot of John Norton on the North & containing 
& Allowed for two acres. I. Prop. Ree. fol. 9. 

Jn a Town meeting February 11 th 1673. Thomas French desiring that 
his son in law John Dudley might be accepted as a planter upon Thomas 
French engaging to give him 20 acres of land. The Town accepted John 
Dudley to be a planter.

3i>2 Frenches of Ipswich. [July, 


Communicated by A. D. Weld French, Esq., of Boston, Mass. 

The following is an extract from a letter of John Bluette (who 
had been steward of Groton Manor, of which Gov. Winthrop was 
lord) to John Winthrop, Jr., of New England, dated Groton, 
March 4, 1632-3, and printed in the Collections of the Massachu- 
setts Historical Society, 5th Series, Vol. I. pp. 199-200. 

"My louinge coraendations to John Sampford, goodman Pease & 
his company and to Anne Chambers, John Biggs, my schollars 
Thomas French and John Clarke." 

Thomas French referred to is supposed to be the same as found anterior 
to the above date in the records of the First Church of Boston, where it 
appears between the name of John Winthrop and that of his wife. Thomas 
French was recorded a freeman on Nov. 6, 1632. The records of the First 
Church of Boston show that he had a daughter Mary, born 1831-2; she 
must have died soon after, as he had another daughter of the same christian 
name born in 1634, and from the fact that this christian name is perpetuated, 
it may indicate that the name of his wife was Mary. He removed to Ipswich 
in 1034, and in 1638 he was dismissed from the Boston Church to that of 
Ipswich, and he died before Nov. 5, 1630, as appears by another record, 
wherein it is stated that " The administration of the goods of Thomas French 
deceased is committed to his wife (a widow French appears in 1611 as 
commoner at Ipswich) and the land which he left is to be disposed for sale 
or otherwise by the advice of the Magistrates of Ipswich for the mainte- 
nance of his wife and education of his children, which are not yet get able to 
provide for themselves nor were disposed of in their Fathers life." 

The above record indicates that he had provided for some of his children. 
The name of Thomas French, Jr. appears in 1638, and again as commoner 
in 1641; he died in 1680. 

Alice French, an early member of the Church of Boston, became the wife 
of Thomas Hovvlett. She was dismissed from the Boston Church to that 
of Ipswich, June 16, 1644. Alice Ilowlett, wife of Thomas Howlett, is 
mentioned in the will of John Robinson of Ipswich in 16.57. There seems 
to have been two Mary Frenches, both married, but whose husbands' names 
are not mentioned. One was a sister of John Haimiford, who mentions 
her in his will of 1567 as follows: children of his sister Mary French. 
Another is found in the Visitation of Gloucester. By this Pedigree, Wil- 
liam Scudamore of Herefordshire had a daughter Mary, wife of French of 
Boston in New England, no christian name being given. This pedigree 
states, that this son died circa 1637, aged about 40. So that the age of 
this Mary French must have been within a few years of that of her bi other. 
William Scudamore's will was proved at London in 1636. In it he makes 
a bequest of five pounds each '"to all the no.w children of Mary French his 
si3ter," but no reference is made to New England. 

1893.1 Notes and Queries. 363 



Robert Williams of Roxbury. — The birthplace and parentage of this man 
have been satisfactorily found, thanks to a hint contained in a record seut by 
Mr. Waters. 

Rev. William Williams, of Hatfield, grandson of Robert Williams, left a 
record of the deaths of his immediate relatives: that for Robert Williams is 
"Septr. 1, 1693. My Grandfather, Mr. Robert Williams. ^Etat. 86." At the 
then method of reckoning, the birth would have been in the year 1607-1603. 
The examination of Robert Williams for embarkation in 1637 found him 28 
years old. This would bring his birth in the year 1608-1CC9. As both agree in 
the year 1608, it was taken as tiie proper year. 

A search through the forty parish registers of Norwich for the century be- 
ginning 1550 gave a few entries for the name Williams, and showed that there 
waSjiio family of that name of any extent living in that city. The only Robert 
was at the beginning of the century examined. The first entry that mentioned 
the person sought in Norwich, called him. or implied that he was a i; foreigner " 
— not a native of Norwich. In the early part of the 17th century there was but 
one Robert Williams in Norwich, and he was first an apprentice to John Gar- 
rett, cordynar: then admitted Freeman of Norwich as apprentice of the above: 
next as taking Nicholas Williams (the name of the brother of R. W.) as an 
apprentice — Nicholas beinir the son of the late Stephen Williams of Yarmouth, 
cordwainer : then as Warden of the guild of cordwainers in 1635. and. lastly, 
as an applicant for permission to emigrate in 1637. This last was Robert Wil- 
liams of Roxbury, and the mention of Nicholas Williams's parentage directed 
the search to Great Yarmouth, where the following was found in the parish 
register of St. Nicholas: " 1608-1 lth-December. Robert Wilyams son of 
Stephen £ Margaret. Baptised." The matter is thus settled conclusively, and 
Robert Williams of Roxbury is found to have been of immediate East Anglian 
rather than of Welsh parentage. Further search may show the origin of the 
family; but the wills in the Norwich Consistory and Archdeaconry show that 
for many years there was an extensive family of the name at Great Yarmouth, 
that was not connected with that of Ormesby. near Norwich. In fact a num- 
ber of East Anglian families of the name have been found, and some of their 
members came to New England. Edwaud II. Willlams, Jr.

Kingsley {ante, p. 215). — It is probable that the John Kingsley who married 
in Windham, Conn., Feb. 19, 1755, Mary Burnap, was the son of Amos and

Washington Items. — W. G. Stannard communicates to the William and 
Mary College Quarterly for April, 1893, an article entitled "John Washing- 
ton on a Tracing Voyage to the East Country," in which he furnishes new 
information about the emigrant ancestor of President Washington, and "Un- 
published Notes on the Washingtons, Popes, Brodhursts, etc." 

Rev. Edward D. Neill. D.D.,"of St. Paul, Minn., who has thrown much light 
on the Washington pedigree, brings this article to the attention of the readers 
of the New York Nation in a communication to that paper of the 18th of May 
last, and shows the value of the documents, particularly as bearing upon Mr. 
Waters*s theory. 

George II. Hawtayne, Esq., of Demerara, who contributed the article on the 
" Will of Mrs. Margaret Hawtayne," in this number of the Register (ante, 
pp. 303-4) , writes to the editor tinder date of G May, 1S03 :— 

" I have just been informed that a deed of sale exists among the Barbados 
records thus: 'Entered July 26, 1661. Edward Jones sells to Bartholomew

Mather Chair. — We would acknowledge our indebtedness to Nathaniel 
Paine, Esq., of Worcester, Mass., for a photograph of this chair, from which the 
engraving in this number, facing paire 340, is made. The chair was presented 
to the Americal Antiquarian Society by Mrs. Hannah Mather Crocker (who died 
in 1820), and according to her statement, printed on page 310, it was brought to 
this country in 1635 by Rev. Richard Mather, who had sat in it in England when 
a child. We are under obligation to the Americau Antiquarian Society for allow- 
ing Mr. Paine to take the photograph.

Joseph Henry Stickney, a prominent and successful merchant, died at his 
home in Baltimore, Maryland, May 3, 1893. He was the son of Thomas and 
Mary (Ward) Stickney, and was born in West Brookfleld, Mass., August 0, 1811. 
His father died in Boston in 181 1, and was buried in the Coleman tomb in King's 
Chapel burial ground. The families of Stickney and Ward were both of the 
best New-England stock, and they have each furnished a number of eminent 
and useful men. 

William Stickney and his wife Elizabeth were members of the First Church 
in Bo-ton in 1038. " Mr. J. H. Stickney believed that they came from the parish 
of Stickney, in Lincolnshire, England. Mr. Savage thinks they came from Hull, 
in Yorkshire, in 1037.* The family seems to have been well known in Lincoln- 
shire, and the name is found in several parish registers. In the time of Ed- 
ward III., John de Stickney paid taxes in old Boston. 

William Ward, the maternal ancestor of Mr. Stickney, came to Xew England 
before 1039. In the record.-, of the First Church in Boston, it is written that 
" William Stickney was dismissed ye 24 th day of ye 9 th Month of 1039 to ye 
gathering of a Church in Rowley, if ye Lord so please." The family lived in 
Rowley for a number of generations. It is related that the first William Stick- 
ney brought with him from England a quarto Bible of the authorized version 
of 1011. This Bible is now in the possession of one of his descendants in 
Bradford, Mass. 

Joseph Henry Stickney was of the seventh generation from the earliest of the 
name in New England. He left Hopkins Academy in Iladley to enter upon a

business life when he was about twenty years of age. After a year spent in 
Boston as an apprentice, and a year in New York, he went to Baltimore in 183-1, 
and entered into business as a commission merchant. For almost sixty years 
he was connected with the business of the monumental city. He was a staunch 
New-England man in a southern city. The fact that he lived outside New Eng- 
land may have developed his interest in the history and the institutions of the 
state of his nativity. Some years au - o he prepared and published a pamphlet 
entitled ,; The Town-hip System, with a Consideration of its Advantages." As 
many as five thousand copies were distributed by him in sections of the country 
where the township sy-tem was not understood. He also published pamphlets 
relating to the colonial period of New-England history. He succeeded in estab- 
lishing in Baltimore a New-England church, after the faitli and polity of the 
Puritans. Tor many years he furnished from his own menus a large part of the 
money for its support. He was one of the generous and regular contributors 
to the various monuments to the Pilgrims. It has been his custom for many 
years to make an annual visit to Plymouth, and it was by his advice and pecu- 
niary aid, in a large degree, that so much has been done to gather and preserve 
the memorials of the fathers of New England. He was much interested in the 
special work of the New-England Historic Genealogical Society, and in March, 
1882, he was elected a corresponding member. 

His estate was valued at 8461,000! Of this sum 8248,000 was bequeathed to 
a number of religious societies whose work lies within our own country. Among 
his other bequests was one of 81,000 to this Society; to the town of West 
Brookfield. for a library and bank. 84,500; to the town of Rowley 82,000 for 
the same purpose •. for a column on Clark's Island, where the party from the 
Mayflower spent the first Sabbath, 84,000; for the purchase of land, and the 
extension of Coleshill, Plymouth, to Leyden St., 821,000; for the erection of a 
granite shaft to those of the Pilgrim fathers who died during the first winter, 
812,000 ; to improve Burial Hill, 810,000 ; to improve the lot on which the monu- 
ment to the Pilgrims is erected, 83,000; for the maintenance of Pilgrim Hall, 
Plymouth (the income only to be used), 810,000; and for grading and enclos- 
ing the Standish monument, 84,000. 

Mr. Stickney was never married. 

George Chandler, A.B., M.D.. died at his home in Worcester, May 17, 1893, 
at the ripe age of eighty-seven years. He was elected a resident member of this 
Society Dec. 1, 1858. He was a native of Pomfret. Conn., where he was born 
April 28, 1806. He was the son of Major John Wilkes and Mary (Stedman) 
Chandler. Major Chandler was a descendant of the fifth generation from Wil- 
liam and Annis Chandler, who came to Iioxbury in 1637. The records speak of 
Annis Chandler as a " blessed saint." 

The father of Dr. Chandler was a well-to-do farmer, and his son remained at 
home until his seventeenth year, when he became a student in the academy in 
Dudley, Mass. We hear of him later in the academy in Leicester, Mass., and at 
Woodstock, Conn. He entered Brown University in 1826. Two years later he 
entered Union College, where he was graduated in the class of 1829. He re- 
ceived hi* medical degree from Yale College in 1831. 

Immediately after receiving his degree he began the practice of medicine in 
the city of Worcester. The larger part of his professional life was devoted to 
the care of the insane, first at the State Lunatic Hospital in Worcester, where 
he was the assistant of Dr. S. B. Woodward from 1833 to 1842. In 1842 he 
was appointed superintendent of the State Lunatic Asylum in Concord, New 
Hampshire. In 1846 he was re-called to Worcester, to succeed Dr. Woodward 
as superintendent of the State Lunatic Hospital. He was at the head of this 
hospital for ten years. He devoted twenty-live years of his life to the care of 
the insane. His careful discrimination of the symptons of his patients, as well 
as his entire self-control, and his gentle and sympathetic dealing with them, 
made him one of the most successful physicians with this class of patients. 

He retired from professional service at a comparatively early a^re, and devoted 
the remainder of his long life to travel and to historical and literary pursuits. 
He made two extended trips to Europe, and the East, each of which kept him 
from home about two years. 

Dr. Chandler was a member of t lie American Antiquarian Society, and of the 
Massachusetts Medical Society. In 1850 he was olo of the representatives of 

1893,] Necrology of Historic Genealogical Society. 369 

the city of Worcester in the General Court. In 1862 he responded to the call 
for volunteer surgeons, and went to Fortress Munroe, where he did good ser- 
vice in the hospitals and on board the government transports. 

He devoted much time to the collection of materials and to compiling a gen- 
ealoiry of the Chandler Family, and a book of 1238 pages had been printed and 
was in the binder's hands on the Oth of November, 1872. when the whole edition, 
except forty-one copies which had been delivered to him, was destroyed in the 
Great Boston Fire. After a ^hort respite from his labors, he resumed work on 
the genealogy, and in the summer of 1883, when he was seventy-seven years 
old, a new edition of 1323 pages, thoroughly revised, was issued. * 

He has long been a marked tlgure in Worcester. He was easily among the 
most respected citizeus, and was recognized as one of the best representatives 
of the generation that has gone by. He retained his interest in professional 
and in public affairs in his later years, and held to the last the affection of a 
large circle of friends. 

Dr. Chandler was twice married. May 4th. 1S52, he married Josephine Rose, 
who died in 1868, leaving two children. April 8th. 1874, he married Mrs. Mary 
E. Douglass, the widow of Charles D. Wheeler, who survives him. 

Eev. Seth Chandler, of Shirley, Massachusetts, was born at New Ipswich, 
N. H., December 2, 1806, and was the son of Roger Chandler, whose father was 

Roger Chandler was born in Xew Ipswich. August 7, 1770, and married Lydia 
Marshall of Chelmsford, Mass.. December 22. 170". She was the daughter of 
Thomas Marshall, and was born December 19, 1774. 

Seth Chandler received his early education in the public school of his native 
town. At the age of seventeen he became weary of the monotony of work and 
life upon the farm, and going down to Waltham, Mass., entered a machine-shop 
there to learn the trade of machinist. He worked at this trade at Waltham and 
at Lowell for six years, until 1829; when, at the age of twenty-three, he be- 
came convinced that his life-work lay in another direction. He determined to 
follow his convictions, which called him to preparation for the Christian min- 
istry. He therefore entered upon his studies under the tuition of the Rev. Adin 
Ballon, of Medway, Mass. After completing his preparation, he preached in 
several different places, and for some time at Oxford, Mass. He was ordained 
to preach as an Evangelist, June 1, 1834, and was temporarily settled over " The 
Fir.^t Congregational Society in Shirley," at a salary of four hundred dollars a 
year. After two and a half years Mr. Chandler was invited to settle perma- 
nently as the pastor of the Society, and accepting, was publicly installed Decem- 
ber 14, 183G, Rev. Calvin Lincoln of Eitchburg preaching the sermon. 

In this ministry thus begun Mr. Chandler continued until the time of his 
death, in 1889, though in the last years not able to perform the active duties of 
his office. In this long pastorate, he had identified himself with all the interests 
of the town and became a trusted authority in ail its affairs. Especially in the 
public schools, and all matters pertaining to education, his advice was sought; 
and much of the prosperity and improvement in the town's education for two 
generations was due to his conservative, but wise and earnest, direction. He 
was a member of the school committee for more than fifty years, and was 
practically director of the school system for the greater part of that time. He 
was also an authority in the financial management of the town; and was for 
many years trustee of the school fund. He was chosen treasurer of the town 
in I8ti6, and held the office most of the time afterwards, until obliged to with- 
draw from active duty. His management of the financial interests of the town 
was wise and prudent, and was appreciated by the people, who called him to 
the office again and again throughout the Ions: term of years. Mr. Chandler's 
Influence as a moral and religious man and teacher will be felt for generations. 
With no brilliancy of genius to make him widely known as a preaeher, he yet 
rendered himself acceptable and trusted from" his qualities in the every-day 
affairs of life. His faithful and upright character was a part of the sermons 
which he preached on Sunday; and his daily life was a constant admonition to 
the people about him. 

Mr. Chandler was an. earnest student of history, both general and local. 
When he thsi cai io to Shirley, in June, 1834. he says that he found many of the 
immediate descendants of the first settlers, to whom the parents had lold their 
VOL. xlvii. 32* 

370 J\ T ecroogy of Historic Genealogical Society. \_3v\y, 

stories of the early settlement. These stories and whatever genealogical mem- 
oranda he conld glean he collected and committed to writing while the aged 
people yet lived.; and during his life evidently he kept adding to his store of 
information until 1871, when many of the townspeople, becoming aware of the 
valuable manuscripts which lie had collected, took action, and at a town-meeting 
the sum of rive-hundred dollars was appropriated to secure the publication of a 
history of Shirley. The compiler set at work immediately, and in a few mouths 
had completed the historical part of the work, which was what the town contem- 
plated. But Mr. Chandler decided that a genealogical history also should be 
prepared, and this, with his other duties, delayed the completion of the work 
until 1883, when a flue volume of some seven-hundred and fifty pages was 
published. This volume will remain as a monument of the foresight, diligence 
and ability of the author forever. Besides this. Mr. Chandler's published works 
were few. "A Funeral Sermon upon the death of Stillman S. H. Parker, 
preached February 1, 184 I." Miscellaneous articles in newspaper-, and six school 
reports. Neither Mr. Chandler's influence nor character can be adequately writ- 
ten here or elsewhere: it cannot be put into words. A gentleman who was 
associated with him in the ministry at Shirley, as a temporary colleague, thus 
writes me : 

'• During the two years that I supplied the pulpit at Shirley I formed an inti- 
mate acquaintance with Mr. Chandler, and became deeply interested in the man, 
aud his long years of labor which were then drawing to a clo>e. I esteemed it 
a rare privilege to come into personal contact with one who represented, as he 
did, that old-time, unambitious, faithful devotion, which distinguished the life 
of many of the ministers of the past generation in our New England country 
parishes. The large library which Mr. Chandler had gathered and the extent 
of his information, especially upon historical subjects, proved him to have 
been a diligent student. He had not much sympathy with the modern, scientific 
view of the universe, ills thought and language were moulded in forms famil- 
iar to an earlier generation. He had, however, a kindly interest in the younger 
men in the ministry, and was tolerant of the new views which most of them 
held, as he knew. His life and his ministry were both eminently practical; and 
both by example aud precept he aimed to inculcate those homely virtues of 
industry, sobriety and purity of life which are our inheritance from our Puritan 
ancestry. With a small salary, never much in advance of that with which he 
began in 1834, he was content to live aud labor iu the oue chosen field, putting 
his best into his work, satisfied if he could serve, even in a small way, the Master 
whom he loved and tried to follow." 

The writer of the above was Rev. L. B. Macdonald, now of Boston. Mr. 
Chandler lived in a quiet pastoral way in the midst of his people in the beauti- 
ful village. He cultivated his own farm and garden, and loved his rural pursuits 
and surroundings. 

Mr. Chandler married, August 16, 1G31, Arvilla Tenney, who was the daughter 
of Joseph Tenney of New Ipswich, N.H., where she was bom July 18, 1S07. 
She was an estimable lady, and a "worthy helpmeet of a worthy miuister.'' 
Mrs. Chandler died several years before her husband. No children were ever 
born to them. 

Mr. Chandler was elected a corresponding member of the New-England His- 
toric Genealogical Society Sept. 3, 1845. He died at Shirley, October 4, iSS'J.

William Taylor Glidpex was the son of John and Sarah (Shove) Gliddec, 
born in Newcastle, Maine, Sept. 22, 1805, and descended from the Gliddens of 
New Market, N. H., 1013, from which place they removed to Maine in 17.30. 

Very early in life he went to sea, and by the time he was twenty-one years of 
age had attained the rank of captain, and subsequently made many voyages in 
the China and European trade. 

In 1848 he removed to Boston, the following year forming a partnership with 
the late Hon. J. M. S. Williams of Cambridge, and the firm of Gildden & Wil- 
liams became extensively known in the shipping trade between Boston and Sau 
Francisco. They were owners of and interested in a lanre fleet of the then 
famous clipper ships, and the business tact and systematic managem* nt dis- 
played gained to tbern the confidence of shippers, resulting in an extensive and 
prosperous business.

In 1877 the firm was dissolved and Mr. Glidden, although residing in Boston 
during the winter, made his home in his native town until his death, which 
occurred at Newcastle Jan. 28, 1893. 

lie married first, Susan Cotter, and second, in 1840, Catherine C. Glidden. 
whose death occurred about three years since, lie had four daughters and three 
sons. John M. Glidden, the only surviving son, resides at the old home " Gladis- 
f en " in Newcastle. Me. 

Mr. Glidden was greatly interested in genealogy, and when in England spent 
much time in tracing the lineage of the family, and in visiting scene- once 
familiar to his ancestors, especially the " Glidden"' at Hambleden, Hampshire, 
where is still standing the old manor house built in the style of the fourteenth 
and fifteenth centuries. 

He was elected a member of this Society June 1, 1S70, the subsequent year 
becoming a life member. He was also a member of the Maine Historical 
Society, Virginia Historical Society, Boston Marine Society, Tine Tree State 
Club. Union Club of Boston, and other kindred organizations. 

In his native town he endowed a Protestant Episcopal church which was built 
upon land originally granted to his ancestors when they moved to Maine in 1750. 

He was a man of kindly nature, courteous bearing and fiue appearance, and 
his resemblance to Mr. Gladstone has been frequently remarked duriug the last 
thirty years. He was considered - the soul of honor, loyal to Ins country and 
to his friends," and was thoroughly respected by all who knew him, and especi- 
ally appreciated by the hosts of friends with whom he was associated in his 
business career and in social life.

B ex jamix Homer Hall, a corresponding member of the New-England His- 
toric Genealogical Society, elected March 6. 1861, and a prominent and highly 
respected citizen of Troy. N. Y., died in that city. April 6. l s '.»3. Mr. Hall was 
a son of Daniel Hall, a native of Westminster, Vermont, and Anjinette Fitch of 
New York, who was a lineal descendant of Thomas Fitch, one of the last of the 
Colonial Governors of Connecticut. John Hall, the founder of the family in 
this country, came from Coventry, England, and settled in Charlestown, Mass,. 
in 1630 ; and Lot Hall, the grandfather of the deceased, distinguished himself as a 
Lieutenant in the privateer service of the colonial navy during the Revolutionary 
War, was captured, and imprisoned in Glasgow. After his return to this 
country he settled in Westminster, Vermont, where he practised law, and be- 
came a Justice of the Supreme Court of that State. Benjamin's father, Daniel, 
went to Troy in 1806, and studied law in the office of William M. Bliss, having 
among his fellow students William L. Marcy, afterwards United States Senator 
and Governor of New York. His son, Benjamin Homer Hall, was born in Troy, 
Nov. 14, 1830. He received his early education in private schools in that city, 
and was prepared for college at Phillips Academy, Andover. Mass., entering 
Harvard in 1847 and graduating in the Class of 1851. While a student at Cam- 
bridge he published a work entitled i4 A Collection of College Words and C is- 
toms," of which a revised edition was called for a few years later. After his 
graduation he spent some time at the family home in Westminster, and in 1S58 
he published " A History of Eastern Vermont from its Earliest Settlement to 
the Close of the Eighteenth Century," an octavo volume of 799 pages, of which 
the Rev. Andrew P. Peabody says, in the North America Review for July, in 
that year : " The author sustains himself throughout with unflagging spirit, and 
his book will be read with unwearying interest." In 1860 he contributed an 
exhaustive article on Vermont to the Bibliography of that state, and in 
1865 he edited " A Tribute by the Citizens of Troy to Abraham Lincoln.'.' 
He was editor and proprietor of the Troy WIulc for several year-, and was a 
frequent contributor to the Troy Times. Indeed, throughout his life he re- 
tained his interest in literary pursuits, delivering addresses, both in prose and 
in verse, on various occasions, in his native city. 

Mr. Hall studied law, and was admitted to the Rensselaer County bar in 1S5G. 
In 1858 he was appointed city clerk, which office he held for one year. In ls7f 
he was appointed chamberlain of the city, and served in that capacity till his 
term expired in. 1877; and asrain, in 18*4, he was appointed chamberlain and 
served till May, 1S88. He was at oi-o time a Director in the Vei out Central 
Railroad, and atso a Director in the old bank of Trov. now the United National 

372 Necrology of Historic Genealogical Society, [July, 

Bank ; and for many years he was one of the leading spirits in the Young Men's 
Association, of which he was the president in 1859. 

Mr. Hall, though not celebrated as an advocate, is said to have ranked high as 
an office lawyer, and he held some very important trusts. " The perplexities of 
his legal profession," says a writer in the Troy Daily Express, "did not dull 
the fine points of his literary culture, nor lessen his love for study. His char- 
acter was pure, upright, and unsullied in every particular, and he emphasized 
with pronounced force, in his own career, the character of a Christian 
gentleman. 7 ' 

Mr. Hall married, June 1, 1859, Margaret M. Lane, a daughter of Jacob L. 
Lane, who, with two sons and two daughters, survives him.

William Lee, M. D., was elected a resident member Nov. 7, 1883. He was 
born in Boston, March 12, 1841, and was the son of William Barlow Lee and 
Ann (Whitman) Lee. His early education was in private academies in Boston. 
From 1858 to 1800 he was attached as civil assistant to a corps of United States 
Topographical Engineers, and in this service was, in 1859, one of the first party 
of white men who "crossed the great American desert from Salt Lake City to 
Genoa, Nevada, south of the sink of the Humboldt. In April, 1861, when the 
Massachusetts troops passed through Baltimore, their wounded were taken to 
the then Washington Infirmary, later the Judiciary Square Hospital. Here 
Dr. Lee, whose home was now in Washington, was one of the first to volunteer 
to dress and care for their wounds, and continued in this service for six months 
as acting medical cadet of the United States Army. He received the degree of 
M. D. from the College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York in 1863, and 
was resident physician at Bellevue Hospital from 1863 to 1865. Soon after this 
he established himself in the practice of medicine in Washington. In 1872 he 
became professor of Physiology in the medical department of Columbian 
University in Washington, and tilled that chair with signal ability for more than 
twenty years, to the time of his death. He was associate editor of the National 
Medical Journal in 1872, and in 1833 was associate editor of the Journal of the 
American Medical Association. He married, April 9, 1885, Mary Augusta 
Gadsby of Washington. 

Dr. Lee was president (1892-93) of the Medical Society of the District of 
Columbia, and was a member of the Philosophical, Anthropological and Bio- 
logical Societies of the District, also of the Medical Association of the District 
and of the American Public Health Association, the American Association for 
the Advancement of Science and the American Archaeological and Numismatic 
Society. lie was also connected with the Cosmos and other clubs in Wash- 
ington. Besides several pamphlets and contributions to medical publications, 
he published in 1888 a volume of 499 pages, entitled "John Leigh of Agawani 
(Ipswich), Mass., 163-1-1671, and his Descendants of the name of Lee." 

Dr. Lee died in Washington, March 2, 1893, and his body was cremated at 
Loudon Park, Baltimore. He left a widow but no children.

Edward Chase Wilsox, elected a member of this Society February 1, 1865 ; 
died in Brookline, Mass., April 19, 1893. He was the son of John and Sarah 
(Chase) Wilson, and was born in Dover, >*. H., Feb. 19, 1815. Mr. Wilson was 
descended from Michael Wilson, born May 4, 1721, whose son Miles, born June 
7, 1765, was the father of John above named, who was born in York, Maine, 
June 18, 1791. 

The family removed from Dover, N. II. to Brunswick, Maine, and thence to 
South Berwick, where at a very early age Mr. Wilson commenced his business 
life. About the year 1840 he removed to Springfield, Mass., where, although 
but twenty-five years old, he opened the largest dry goods store then to be found 
in the western part of the state. Relinquishing this business in 1849, he removed 
to Boston, where he found a wider scope for his business activity, and became 
a member of the firm of Turner, Wilson & Co., wholesale dealers in dry goods, 
subsequently Wilson, Hamilton & Co. In 1866 he retired from active business 
life. For over forty years his home was in Brookline, although he travelled 
extensively in Europe a portion of the time. 

Mr. Wilson was a man of integrity, unusual sagacity, of quick perc j tion and 
excellent judgment, all contributing to his marked success in business life and 

1393.] Booh Notices. 373 

to the esteem in which he was held by his associates. Although he did not have 
the opportunity to obtain a liberal education, ho kept well informed in all 
matters. He read, observed and reflected, and thus acquired a large store of 
information and a well-trained mind. A quick insight into the relations of 
things also gave weight to his opinions upon any subject. The cause of educa- 
tion found in him a ready support, and to all forms of benevolent effort he was 
a judicious and liberal contributor. 

To the end of his long life he maintained his interest in the current events of 
the day, political, social and religious. He was closely identified with the in- 
terests" of the Baptist denomination while in South Berwick. Springfield and 
Brookline, and it has been said of hira, that "the peculiar traits of mind, the 
foresight, energy, perseverance and intimate knowledge of men. which crowned 
with success almost every effort in his business career, were, from first to last, 
devoted to the interests of the church he had chosen as his spiritual home." 

He married in South Berwick, June 15, 18-11, Emmeline Gri^s of Brookline. 
by whom he had four daughters and one son, William G. Wilson, now residing 
in New York.

KowlaisD Ellis was elected a resident member Nov. 5, 1884. He was born 
in Boston, Nov. 26, 1807, and was the son of Joshua and Sarah (Lewis) Ellis. 
His education was in private schools in Boston and in the Boston High School, 
which he entered at, its opening, May 1, 1821. The most of his life was passed 
in the city of his birth, which he served in various capacities. — on the old 
Primary School Board,' in the City Council, and as one of her Kepreseutatives in 
the Legislature. 

Mr. Ellis had an unusually retentive memory of persons and places. He was 
authority on all subjects relating to historic Boston. He lived many years on 
Hanover Street, and knew every street and alley at the " Old North End.'' and 
could toil the history of every family that had made its permanent home there 
during the century, and point out the exact location of every hi:>torie building. 
When a boy he attended the same church as Paul Rtwere. and could accurately 
describe him as he used to stride up the church aisle. 

Mr. Ellis married in Boston, Oct. 30, 1831, Eliza Ann Coburn (daughter of 
Thomas) . The children of this marriage were Eliza Ann Coburn, Sarah E ranees, 
Anna Cornelia, Martha Josephine and Adelaide Louisa. His second marriage 
was at Peppered, Mass., Aug. 16, 1849, with Harriet Green (daughter of John). 
She died, leaving no children. Mr. Ellis died at Newton Centre, Mass., Feb. 1G, 
1893, leaving two daughters.

The History and Genealogies of Ancient Windsor, Connecticut; including East 
Windsor, South Windsor, Bloomtietd, Windsor Locks and Ellington. By Henry, 
■ It. Stiles, A.M., M.D. Hartford, Conn.: Press of the Case, Lockwood & 
Brainard Company. 1893. Two volumes, royal 8vo. ; Vol. I., pp.950; Vol. 
II., pp. 807. Price, 820.00. To be obtained of Miss Ruth T. Sperry, East 
Windsor Hill, Ct., to whom correspondence should be addressed as the author 
is absent from the United States. 

Of these two volumes the first contains the history, and the second the gen- 
ealogies, of the ancient town of Windsor. The two are an enlargement and 
revision of the History of Windsor by the same author, issued in 1S"9, and a 
genealogical supplement, published in 18G3. The genealogical recor i then pre- 
sented comprised 334 pages; it is now expanded to bG7 pages. This fact, as 

374. Booh Notices. [July, 

remarked by the author in the preface to Vol. 2. certifies to a notable Increase 
of interest in this branch of inquiry, on the pare of readers, within the period 
indicated. lie says, " In 1859 but two town genealogies of considerable magni- 
tude had been published, Bond's of Watertowu, Mass., and Cothreirs of Wood- 
bury, Conn. At that tune I found but few who sufficiently appreciated the 
nature and value of my labors to assist in perfecting them. In the preparation 
of my present edition i have almost suffered from a plethora of material. Since 
the issue of the original History more than thirty genealogies of original Wind- 
sor families, some of them being work- of great extent and value, have appeared, 
and fully as large a number are now in active preparation. From these, both 
in print and in manuscript, this revision has received much incidental help.*' It 
may be predicted, accordingly, that the two volumes now issued will have a 
substantially equal interest to readers identified by ancestry or residence with 
the town. 

The Held, both as respects territory and the number of topics touched upon or 
elaborated, is considerably larger in the present than it was in the original 
History. The towus on the east side of the Connecticut river which have been 
cut out from the original Windsor township, viz.. East Windsor, South Windsor 
and Ellington, are here more amply discoursed upon. The same remark is 
applicable to the modem towns of Windsor Locks and Bloom field, on the west 
side of the river, which have been in like manner set off. while, as to old Wind- 
sor Centre itself, whatever the zealous study of thirty years has brought to 
light lias been made available for expansion, correction or more perspicuous re- 
statement. The call for a new edition had its origin in part from what that study 
has yielded of truth and fact, old indeed in one sense, but new in another, and 
vital to the pin-poses of the historian. Moreover, the original volume has long- 
been out of print, and a new generation of would-be readers has grown up. 
The new work has accordingly been published upon the commercial basis of a 
given number of copies subscribed for in advance, and was thus assured of a 
welcome before its arrival. Others, outnumbering the list of subscribers, how- 
ever long that may be, stand ready to take off their hats in salutation as it shall 
appear before them. 

The work appeals primarily, of course, to such readers as are identified by 
ancestry or residence with the place. But it is Windsor's good fortune in New 
England history to be among those marked as extraordinary and not in the roll 
of common towns, making its record to be one of special interest to readers 
without the border. It was settled in 1635 by Massachusetts men, and was 
recognized for a time as being within the jurisdiction of that colony. A party 
of Plymouth colony men had already established themselves there when the 
Massachusetts explorers arrived. A controversy ensued, in which the magis- 
trates of the two colonies eventually took part, and thereupon was " much ado," 
as the History minutely relates. Simultaneously with the appearance of the 
Massachusetts men arrived the advance guard of other claimants of the terri- 
tory, certain " lords and gentlemen " of England, who would fain have ousted 
both parties. Besides these was a party of Dutch traders, who claimed for 
their principals everything thereabouts within an eagle's sight, if not within an 
eagle's flight. The issue of it all was that the Massachusetts men (who were 
chieffy from Dorchester) acquired by occupation and by purchase, partly from 
the Plymouth people and partly from the Indians, all the desired territory, ex- 
cepting about 4:3 acres, which lot was reserved by Plymouth and sold to a 
Hartford man, under whose title it came into tin.- jurisdiction of Windsor. The 
English lords and the Dutch were otherwise disposed of as the narrative shows. 
The possessors called their settlement at first, "Dorchester," but in lfio" the 
authorities of Connecticut changed the name to Windsor, " undoubtedly," as 
the History says, •' in honor of Windsor, the royal abode of the English sove- 
reigns." Although it is a mooted point, the History gives Windsor rank as the 
first settlement on the river, relying partly, and perhaps chiefly, on the nearly 
contemporary manuscript of Samuel Maverick, recently discovered by Mr. II. 
F. Waters in England, and communicated to the Register for January, 1885. 

Considerable discussion has been had in Massachusetts at various times by 
historians and others as to Windsor affairs of early date, the questions in brief 
being: Did the Dorchester people behave well or ill towards the Plymouth 
people, in taking possession of lands on the Connecticut river? Did the Dor- 
chester church, as ai i - itiou, go to Connecticut, yj thai for s'jiue mo 


Booh Xotlces. 375 

Dorchester in Massachusetts had no church? The facts and documentary evi- 
dence discovered down to date, or all which are of importance, bearing on 'these 
questions, are in detail or in substance set forth in the History, with candor and 
frankness, so that it seems not too much to say that each case is here adequately 
made up, leaving free scope for the " consensus of opinion " by its slow methods 
to pass tinal judgment. A full consideration of the church question requires, 
] owevcr, that the preface to the printed volume of Dorchester First Church 
records be read. 

It would be impossible to give within reasonable space a proper synopsis of 
the History. In one view it is not a book but a library of books, treating upon 
diverse though correlated subjects. Something appears of the ecclesiastical 
history of the original aud each of the later parishes of the old town : of Wind- 
sor's action in the Indian wars, especially that with the Pequods, the Freuch 
war, t'ne war of the Revolution, that of 1812, the Mexican war and the Civil 
war. with very full lists of the soldiers in several instances; something con- 
cerning the public schools of different periods, of business growths and pros- 
perities, of topography, of the notable men of the several generations, of times 
aud manners as illustrated by anecdotes, and of the lore of epitaphs. 

Every page gives evidence that diligence and enthusiasm have attended the 
preparation of the work. Dr. Stiles is the author, but he has had numerous 
helpers, to whom, severally, in 3iis preface, he makes due acknowledgement. 
To the principal and eldest of these he pays this graceful tribute : '• 1 esteem it 
a most fortunate circumstance that the same kindly Providence which has spared 
my life and health, so that I might, at this time, revise and perfect the work of 
my youthful years, has also spared that of my venerable and beloved friend . 
'Mr. Jabez H. "Hayden, of Windsor Locks, Conn., to whom was due so much of 
the value of the first edition. Nature certainly designed him as the historian of 
hi< native town, but the multiplicity of his business cares, conjoined with his 
modesty, has prevented him from forestalling me. as by right he should have 
done, in this historical work. I have only to thank him for the help which he 
has rendered, as earnestly and freely to this revision, as he did to the original 
work.' 1 Elsewhere the author refers to Mr. Hayden as "the highest living 
authority on Windsor historical matters." All this beimr so. it sufficiently 
attests Dr. Stilus's skill and fidelity that Mr. Hayden preferred to let things be- 
gin and proceed as they have done. It will be a hypercritical reader who will 
express anything less than satisfaction and praise for the work as it comes from 
Dr. Stiles's hand. The first volume contains -12 illustrations, views, portraits, 
maps, etc., and 25 fac-simile autographs; the second has Gl like illustrations, 
one fac-simile military commission.

An Account of the Celebration of the Seventy-fifth Anniversary of the Second 
Society of Universalists, December 18, 1892; also of The Proceedings of the 
Parish Social Banquet, Jan. 20, 1S93. Boston Universalist Publishing 
House. 1803. 8vo., pp. 129. 

This volume, printed at the University Press, is a creditable book in every 
particular. Paper and type are agreeable to the eye, and the contents are inter- 
esting and have decided historic value. The occasions of which it is the record 
were evidently arranged in a thoughtful and thorough manner, with a realiza- 
tion of their importance and significance. 

The morning service of December 18th was given to an historical sermon by 
A. A. Miner, D.D., wdio for forty-four years had been pastor. It is a remarka- 
ble' fact, that the entire period of seventy-five years is practically covered by 
two pastorates: Hosea Ballon being pastor from L 1817 to 1852, and A. A. Miner, 
• D.D., from 1848 to 1892. There were indeed two attempts to rind colleagues 
for Hosea Ballou, neither of which resulted in fixed and permanent relations: 
it is true also that E. H. Chapin, D.D., the eloquent orator who for so many 
years made his pulpit in Xew York a centre of influence and power, Ava> for two 
years associate pastor; but he resigned to enter upon his New York settlement, 
while Hosea Ballon lived aud retained his connection with the parish. Dr. 
Miner's settlement, therefore, laps over that of Hosea Ballou, and the two set- 
tlements fill out the seventy-live years, a fact creditable alike to | a-fors and 
people. This fact gives the sermon a special interest and importance: for it 
'■■ idies it tiie personal record of one whose lite largely entered into the period 
of w hich he is historian. 

376 Booh Notices. [July, 

The second service supplemented the sermon with three essay: ■ — 

First, — An Estimate of Hosea Ballou, by Rev. O. Cone. D.D., President of 
Buctel College. 

Second,— Review of seventy-five years, by I. M. Atwood, D.D., President of 
the Theological School,. Canton, N. Y. 

Third,— Present Opportunity, by Rev. C. H. Leonard, D.D., Dean of Tufts 
College Divinity School. 

Dr. Cone's estimate of Hosea Ballou is marked by thoroughness of investi- 
gation, judicial discrimination and accuracy of statement. It is cool, dispas- 
sionate and authoritative, and will take high rank as an historical and 
biographical study. Dr. Atwood's writing lias a distinct literary flavor and a 
bright and sparkling quality, which in less serious vein would amuse by its wit. 
but which, with the proper restraint which the Doctor generally observes, is 
effective, entertaining, while at the same time instructive. Dr. Leonard's essay 
is fine in spirit, apostolic in tone, and full of that wisdom which comes from 
long experience as pastor and teacher. In construction it is a model of con- 
ciseness and logical sequence. It could be studied with profit by every society 
in the Protestant church, without regard to sect. 

The social banquet which completed the celebration added a series of seven 
addresses, excellent in presentation of parish affairs and duties, but with the 
exception of the response for Hosea Ballou by his grandson, they had to do 
with the present and the future. 

It will be seen that the interest of the anniversary centres largely in the work 
and influence of the first pastor: and that in the series of services we have 
three different estimates of his character and life labors, — the first by his asso- 
ciate. Dr. Miner, who gives us. the historical facts : the second by his grandson, 
who opens to us the loving and personal estimate of a daughter: and the third, 
the judgment of an historian, who, three generations removed, has as a student 
investigated the environment of the man, analyzed his record, and established 
his standing and influence. 

When the history of Xew-Enedand theology is impartially written, Hosea 
Ballou will occupy a prominent position as an influence and power in its 

One hundred years ago the sombre creed of John Calvin dominated this re- 
gion. Under its shadow Ballou was born : his father a poor country parson 
who accepted and preached its terrors. Hosea Ballou had hardly arrived at 
manhood when his study of the Bible opened to him a milder and gentler faith. 
God, in place of a stern judge, became to him a loving father, and soon he 
realized the necessary conclusion that the absolute rule of a good God must 
necessarily result in the salvation of all his children. Full of enthusiasm and 
faith, he boldly attacked the foundations of orthodoxy, challenging its premises 
and denying its conclusions. His personality was strong, his voice was winning, 
his logic was direct and masterly, his illustrations apt and forcible, his eloquence 
captivating : wherever he went he made friends : whenever he preached he made 
converts, for he appealed with power to the hearts of the people. 

It is remarkable also that while young Ballou united with the Universalists, 
" he seems to have meditated upon the principle of central importance in every 
system of Christian theology, and stood almost alone in holding opinions adverse 
to the doctrine's of the Trinity, vicarious atonement and original reprobation. 
The fundamental Unitarian doctrines were elaborated by this solitary young 
thinker from a study of the Bible alone, and to some of them he gave as 
definite and radical an expression as Chauning and his school afterwards 

What a change in the attitude of New-England Protestantism the century has 
wrought. Not only has Bailou's own church L r rown in numbers and influence, 
but at the same time the fundamental principles which he promulgated have 
overstepped the boundaries of sect, and are recognized by Unitarians, liberal 
Othodox and broad-church Episcopalians in the interpretation of their respective 
creeds. God's love is preached oftener than God's hate; and the worth of 
divine favor and a world-wide redemption season more sermons than theories of 
endless woe and unpardonable sin. The Puritan disciple of Calvin has given 
place to a gentler student of the gospel, who is content to trust more to the 
scripture^ and less t<> the grim theologian of Geneva. In effecting this ch 
Hosea Ballon, lirst pastor of the Second Universaiist Church of Boston, ha a 
prominent and influential part under the guidance of the good God. * t *

Fifth Report on the Custody and Condition of the Public Records in the Parishes, 
Toims and Counties. By Robert T. Swast, Commissioner. Boston: Wright 
& Potter Printing Co., State Printers. 1893. 8vo. pp. 50. 
Mr. Swan, the Commissioner of Public Records for the State of Massa- 
chusetts, in his fifth report, now before us, gives the results of his work last 
year, which he says are "gratifying in that an increased interest has been 
awakened in the records, and much has been done towards improvement, as 
much, perhaps, as could have been expected in a matter which has lain com- 
paratively dormant for forty years. The annual burning of town records which 
has taken place for the past three years has been kept up; but there is some 
cause for congratulation, that in one town the records had just been removed 
when the clerk's house was burned. The number of cities and towns reporting 
records burned now reaches forty-five. Twenty-five churches report records of 
one kind or another burned, and, as in early years the church and parish records 
were in reality the town records, part of these can be added to the list of town 
records burned." 

The report of Commissioner Swan of the work done by him, and the infor- 
mation which he has obtained of the condition of the public records and the care 

378 Book Notices. [July, 

bestowed upon them by their custodians, shows the importance of the office. 
Mr. Swan recommends the printing of the records. This is the only sure way 
of preserving them. The report of 1691 contained a list of the cities and towns 
which had printed their record^ or portions of them. An additional list is given 
in the present report. The commissioner renews this year his recommendation 
that the State establish a standard for record ink. He cites instances where 
records in the last half of the present century are gradually fading out, and in 
some instances had to be retraced.

Constitution and By-Laws, of the Pennsylvania Society of Colonial Dames of 

America. ISmo. pp. 22. 

In this number of the Register we have noticed some recent publications of 
Societies of the Sons and the Daughters of the Revolution. The societies 
which have issued the publications whose titles are given above are formed to 
keep in remembrance the virtues of our ancestors of an earlier date. We quote 
the preamble of the Constitution of the Society of Colonial Dames : 

" History shows that successive venerations are awakened to truer patriotism 
and stimulated to nobler endeavour by the contemplation of the heroic deeds of 
their forefathers, and that the remembrance of a nation's glory in the past is 
essential to national greatness in the future : therefore, recognizing the respon- . 
sibiiity which rests upon the descendants of those men and women who, in the 
Colonial period and in the struggle which secured for us our liberty and our 
Constitution, sacrificed their all for their country, to emulate the virtues of 
our forefathers, we do hereby associate ourselves under the title of : The Colo- 
nial Dames of America,' and Ave do declare that our Organization shall have for 
its object the commemoration of the brilliant achievements of the founders of 
this great Republic, to the end that the women as well as the men of this land 
may be stimulated to better and nobler lives." 

The Society of Colonial Wars is composed of men descended from those who 
have rendered military service to their country in the several American colonies 
and provinces. The constitution of the Society sets forth the objects of the 
organization in these words : 

" The objects of said society are social and patriotic, and the said society 
is to be formed for the purpose of perpetuating among their descendants the 
memory of those brave and hardy men who assisted in establishing the colonies 
of America and periled their lives and interests in the French and Indian Wars 
from May 13, 1007, to April 19, 1775. which, preceding the Revolutionary 
straggle, tended to form the glorious, free and independent United States of 
America; and for the collection and preservation of Historical Relics and Docu- 
ments relating to that period." 

The objects of these associations are worthy of commendation, and we wish 
them success in their undertakings. 

A Beport of the Record Commissioners of the City of Boston, containing the, Select- 
men's Minutes from 1769 thro ugh April, 1775. Boston : Rockwell *£ Churchill, 
City Printers. 1893. 

In this twenty-third Report of the Record Commissions of the City of Boston, 
the Minutes of the Selectmen are laid before us in print to the 19th April, 1775, 
the day when the Battle of Lexington was fought. At this point, the editor, 
Mr. Whitmore, informs us that the record is suspended until May 20, 177G. 

We have often spoken of the value of the records and documents which the 
commissioners are preserving in the print, and we congratulate them on having 
accomplished so much, in the eighteen years since the board was organized. 

Tlie College of Early Days. By Andrew McFarlaxd Davis. Svo. pp. 13. 
Tfte Lady Mowlson Scholarship at Cambridge. By Andrew McFarlaxd Davis. 

Worcester, Mass. : Tress of Charles Hamilton. 1893. Svo. pp. 9. 

Mr. Davis, of Cambridge, has devoted much attention during the last few 
years to the investigation of obscure points in the history of Harvard College. 
One of his articles in this line, on 4i The Exhibitions of Harvard College prior 
to 1800," was printed in the Register for July, 1602, The two pamphlets be- 
fore us elucidate other points. 

1893.] Book Notices. 379 

In '-The College of Early Days," Mr. Dovis carries us back to the days of 
the foundation of Harvard College, shows us where the college building was 
probably located and how it was built, and gives us glimpses of student life in 
the early colonial period. The pamphlet is a reprint from the Harvard Grad- 
uates' Magazine for April. 1893. 

The paper on "The Lady Mowlson Scholarship at Cambridge" was read at 
the annual meeting of the American Antiquarian Society, October 21, 1S92. and 
is reprinted from the Proceedings of that Society. It relates to the rirst scholar- 
ship at Harvard College and its founder. When Mr. Davis began his investi- 
gations nothing was known of the donor, except her name and the date of the 
receipt of her donation through Mr. Weld. He is now able to show us that she 
was the widow of Sir Thomas Mowlson, lord mayor of London, and to furnish 
other interesting facts concerning her. 

History of the Town of Rochester, New Hampshire, from 1722 to 1890. By 
Franklin McDuffee, A.M. Edited and revised by Silvanus Hayward. 

In two volumes. Manchester: The John P>. Clarke Co., Printers. 1892. 

8vo. Vol. I., pp. 378; Vol. II., pp. 310 (379-6S5). 

The editor of this work, the Rev. Silvanus Hayward of Southbriclge, Mass.i 
in his preface, informs his readers that the author of this history, the late 
Franklin McDnn'ee of Rochester, " in l*Cjo began a series of historical sketches 
in the Rochester Courier, and with much labor during subsequent years, collected 
a large amount of material for a town history. The minute and thorough 
character of his work is seen in the early history, and especially in the record 
of Rochester in the Rebellion. The carefully prepared sketches and other papers 
contain scattered notes, suggesting changes and additions indicative, in some 
degree, of his general plan. ~ His lamented death left the work unfortunately 
incomplete. His father, John McDulfee. Esq. (now recently deceased), took 
great interest in the matter, and expressed his desire to put the money, which 
others would have expended in marble or granite, into the History of Rochester, 
as a better and more enduring monument to the memory of his son. At his 
request I undertook the task of editing and completing the work. It has proved 
a greater labor than was at first anticipated. Every sentence has been care- 
fully reviewed and re-written in the desire to make it as nearly as possible what 
the author himself would have wished. Much has been added, and many parts 
are exclusively my own." 

Rev. Mr. Hayward has performed his task faithfully, and the book does great 
credit to his ability and zeal. It treats of the Indian and Proprietary history; 
the life of the early settlers, its leading men in the revolutionary period, its 
church history, its professional and business men, and other matters of interest 
in the annals of the town now a city. 

The book has many illustrations, such as maps and plans, portraits of promi- 
nent men, views of buildings, etc. The appendix contains a record of baptisms 
and marriages from 1737 to 1821, from the church records. A good index is 

Barbara Fritchie. A Story. By Caroline II. D all. Boston : Roberts Brothers. 

1892. 12mo. pp. 99. 

Whittier's poem of "Barbara Fritchie" is well known. Soon after it ap- 
peared, doubts as to the facts on which it was founded were expres>ed, and 
even the existence of the heroine herself was questioned. Mrs. Dall has de- 
voted much time to investigating the subject, so that she could _riv to the 
literary world a true version of the story of Barbara Fritchie. In November, 
1875, she contributed to the New Vork Independent an article on the subject. 
A second and fuller account was contributed by her in March, 1878, to a maga- 
zine printed at Springfield, Mass., called the Sunday Afternoon. 

The volume before us contains the result of Mrs. Dall's investigations to the 
present time. Her conclusion is that Barbara Fritchie did display the stars and 
stripes from her window in the city of Frederick in Maryland, while Stonewall 
Jackson's troops marched through the place, that the flag-staff was shot away 
by the soldiers and the flag rescued by Barbara. She is convinced, however, 
that Jackson was not at the lead of his troops at the time, and that what 
Whittier says of his action is not historically true. 

Mrs. Dall has conducted her research in a thorough manner, and deserves 

380 Book Notices. [July, 

much credit for the light she throws on a subject which interests us all. She 
tells us that Whittier, not long before his death, told a Baltimore friend that he 
regretted the ballad, as he was doubtful of the story. " But.'' Mrs. Dall adds, 
" Whittier had no occasion to regret his ballad. Noble-hearted Stonewall 
Jackson neither loses or gains by the story, and would willingly spare a laurel 
leaf in the brave old German's honor." 

The book is well printed, and is illustrated with a portrait of Barbara Fritchie 
and a view of her house. 

The Early Records of the Toicn of Providence. Vol. II. Being the Second Book 
of the Town of Providence, otherwise called the Old Town Book, the Short 
Old Book, the Old Burnt Book, and sometimes the Book with Brass Clasps. 
Printed under the Authority of the City Council of Providence, by Horatio 
Rogers, George Moulton Carpenter and Edward Pield, Record Com- 
missioners. Providence : Snow & Farnham, City Printers. 1893. Sin. Ho. 
pp. 219. 

This is the second volume of the Early Records of Providence. Rhode Island, 
printed under the direction of Messrs. Rogers, Carpenter and Field, commis- 
sioners, under a resolution of the City Council of Providence, approved March 
6, 1S91. The first volume, issued a year ago, contained "The First Book of 
the Town of Providence, otherwise called the Long Old Book with Parchment 

The present volume contains the record of the doings of the town from July 
27, 1042, to March 2-5, 1661. The commissioners, in their preface, give an 
account of the condition of the original book, and the means they have taken 
to reproduce it. A transcript was made in 1800, which has assisted them in 
supplying deficiencies which have occurred since that time. The commissioners 
inform their readers that " their effort has been to present to the possessor of 
this volume, as nearly as possible, the same information which he would receive 

from a perusal of the original book The following method has been 

pursued in making the copy, as in the case of the first volume : In the first 
place a careful copy of the original was made under the direction of the com- 
missioners. They then personally compared this copy, letter by letter, with 
the original, and at the same time with the transcript of 1800. for the double 
purpose of assisting in the interpretation of doubtful words, and also of supply- 
ing letters or words which are wanting or illegible in the original. The copy 
thus produced beiug sent to the printer, the commissioners have personally read 
all the proofs, comparing every letter therein with the original, and also with 
the copy previously prepared by them, and in every case receiving and reading 
revises until a proof sheet was received in which such vigilance as they were 
able to exercise could detect no error." 

The early records of Providence have great historical value, and are worthy 
of the extreme care which the commissioners have taken to obtain a reliable 
reproduction of them. The book is well printed, and a fac-simile of the com- 
pact of the "twenty-five acie purchasers " is given. 

William and Mary Quarterly Historical Papers. Editor: LyonG. Tyler, M.A., 
Williamsburg, Va. Published quarterly. Subscription price 83 a year, or 
75 cents a number. No. 1, July, 1892; No. 2, October, 1892; No. 3, January, 
1893; No. 4. April, 1893. 8vo.* pp. 211. 

Of great historical interest and value arc these volumes issued by William 
and Mary College, the oldest institution of learning in the Old Dominion (founded 
in the year 1692), and, after our own Harvard College, the oldest in our land. 
This quarterly certainly shows a reason for being in the judicious selection of 
historical material contained in its pages. May it have a long and prosperous 
existence. The editor, Mr. Lyon G. Tyler, is the president of William and 
Mary College, and the author of a valuable life of his father, the Hon. John 
Tyler, noticed in the Register (vol. 30, page 200), at the time of its publication. 
Space will permit of reference to but few of the articles. In a terse and vigor- 
ous style, Mr. Tyler, the editor, gives graphic sketches in a paper entitled 
" Early Presidents of William and Mary," of James Blair, D.D. (that courageous 
servant of the church militant in his generation, in whom there was character- 
stuff enough to give great impetus to the work), the founder of the r _■ . and 
its president for fifty years; and of John Camm and James Madison, other able

and zealous friends of the College, who succeeded him in the presidency. The 
portraits drawn of the Royal Governors, Sir Edmund Andros (not unknown to 
Massachusetts people in colonial days) aud Sir Francis Nicholson, are far from 
flattering. At last, however, came Alexander Spotswood, a man of a stronger 
fibre, who administered more wisely the affairs of the colony. It is gratifying 
to note that very early in the history of this ancient College, provision was made 
for the education of the Indians. In 1723 a large building was erected for them 
by means of the Robert Boyle fund, for -'pious and charitable uses," on the 
college grounds. Our Now England forefathers at even an earlier day were 
not unmindful of their obligation to the original owners of the soil. Probably 
the plan carried out at William and Mary College was better than that adopted 
here, for, instead of sending out missionaries to the Indians, they educated and 
christianized Indian youths and sent them back to instruct and convert their 
own people. When will our people, or rather our government, recoguize our 
obligation to this much-injured race; treat them like men, citizens of our 
Republic; not as wards merely, to be herded together in as small a space as 
possible, and to be taken care of at the least possible co>t? Let Congress pass 
a law making the Indians citizens, with equal rights before the law, and remove 
this long-standing blot on our national escutcheon. 

Interesting reference is made to various members of the distinguished Ran- 
dolph family, — prominent for generations in educational and political life, — 
particularly to John Randolph (probably an ancestor of that noble man, the 
subject of Whittier's splendid poem, ''Randolph of Roanoke"), to whom the 
College was much indebted. 

Another of the articles, entitled "Virginia Threads for the Future His- 
torian," contains an interesting letter from George Calvert, the first Lord 
Baltimore, in regard to his colony of Avalon in New Foundland, to secretary 
John Coke, which has recently appeared in one of the reports of the Parliament 
Historical Commission. 

Of great interest to lawyers, statesmen, and indeed to all lovers of history, 
will be the copy of Jefferson's Virginia Constitution, reprinted from the author's 
MS., hitherto unknown, even to his descendants, for more than a century. It 
is well edited by Kate Mason Rowland. In this plan of government the execu- 
tive authority is hampered and restricted in many ways ; still, power may be a 
very dangerous thing, aud should be very carefully guarded by the people from 
whom it is delegated. This paper alone would well furnish material for an 
entire review, and should be carefully studied in all its details. As might be 
expected, Jefferson declares in no uncertain language the doctrine of civil aud 
religious liberty.

On Monday, the 2d of January last, Mrs. Martha J. Lamb, who had been the 
editor of the work nearly ten years, from May, 1883, to January, 1893, died. 
She had tilled the position with rare ability, and* made the work of great value 
to historical students, and a credit to herself. On her death, the National His- 
tory Company, who had been publishing a similar periodical, purchased Mrs. 
Lamb's magazine, materially enlarged the size, reduced the price, and en paired 
the services of Gen. James Grant Wilson as editor. The work is highly credit- 
able under its new management. We learn that Gen. Wiison has been obliged 
by other engagements to resign the editorship.

Two organizations known as the Sons of the Revolution and the Sons of the 
American Revolution have grown out of the celebration of the Centenary of 
American Independence in IS7G. The members consist of descendants of those 
who did service to their country in the American Revolution. Each has a 
General Society, with branch societies in the several States. The headquarters 
of the Sons of the Revolution are at New York city, and those of the Sous of the 
American Revolution are at Washington. A later society, the Daughters of the 
American Revolution, has been formed. At the head of this notice we inve the 
titles of various publications issued by societies connected with these organiza- 
tions, of which copies have been deposited in the library of the New-England 
Historic Genealogical Society, and which have not previously been noticed in 
the Register. These societies bid fair to do much good by keeping in memory 
the acts and sufferings of the Revolutionary patriots from whom we are de- 
scended. We quote the preamble to the Constitution of the General Society of 
the Sons of the Revolution: 

" It being evident from the steady decline of a proper celebration of the 
national holy days of the United States of America, that popular concern in the 
events and men of the War of the Revolution 1- gradually declining, and tlr' r 
such lack of interest is attributable, not so much to the lapse of time and the

rapidly increasing flood of immigration from foreign countries, as to the neglect, 
on the part of the descendants of Revolutionary heroes, to perform their duty 
in keeping before the public mind the memory of the services of their ancestors, 
and of the times in which they lived : therefore, the Society of the Sons of the 
Revolution has been instituted to perpetuate the memory of the men who, in the 
military, naval, and civic service of the Colonies and of the Continental Con- 
gress, by their acts or counsel achieved the independence of the country, and 
to further the proper celebration of the anniversaries of the birth-day of Wash- 
ington, and of prominent events connected with the War of the Revolution; to 
collect and secure for preservation the rolls, records, and other documents re- 
lating to that period; to inspire the members of the Society with the patriotic 
spirit of their forefathers ; and to promote the feeling of friendship among

The Upham Genealogy is by Capt. Frank Kidder Upham, U.S.A., who has

ancestor of this family, came to New England in 1635 with the Rev. Joseph 
Hull, and The names of himself and other members of his family are to be found 
in the list of passengers printed in the Register, vol. 25, pp. 13 to 15. The 
book before us seems to be very thoroughly and carefully compiled. Over 
four hundred pages are devoted to the descendants of the emigrant John Up- 
ham, and there is a supplement of about a hundred pages " showing the ancestry 
of John Upham of New England with an English Upham Genealogy." An iudex 
of about seventy pages carries the book up to 572 pages. We congratulate the 
author ou being able to compile a volume so creditable to the family and to 
him. -elf. 

The book on the Johnson families of Ipswich and ^nclover is by the Rev. 
William W. Johnson, the compiler of "Records of the Descendants of David 
Johnson of Leominster, Mass.," and "Records of the Descendants of Thomas 
Clarke of Plymouth." The present work is in reality an enlargement of his 
first work. That began with David Johnson of Leominster, bom Aug. 20, 1715, 
and died Nov. 10, 1799. The book before as carries the record back to his 
great-grandfather, John Johnson, who settled at Ipswich as early as 1035. The 
author thus writes of the difficulties that attended the preparation of his first 
work: "Living in the West far away from the great Libraries of the country, 
which contain rich stores of historical and genealogical information, and not 
having access to the records of those towns and counties where the early gen- 
erations of the family resided, he was not able to trace the line beyond the said 
David." The present work gives a very full record of the descendants of the 
immigrant ancestor of the family. The book is well printed and indexed, and 
is illustrated with many tine portraits. 

Mr. Morrison's "Lineage and Biographies of the Norris Family in America*' 
is a well compiled and handsomely printed book. The immigrant ancestor of 
the family was Nicholas Norris, who settled at Hampton, N.H., near the middle 
of the seventeenth century. The author has had much experience in writing 
books on local and family history. He has given us in the book before us a 
very full record of the descendants of the Hampton immigrant. The book is 
well printed and illustrated with numerous portraits. It is well indexed. 

The Cilley Genealogy is by Jonathan P. Cilley, a graduate of Bowdom 
College, and a. member of the Maine Historical Society, whose father, Hon. 
Jonathan Cilley, was a classmate of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and Na- 
thaniel Hawthorne at that institution, and a victim of a duel with W. J. 
Graves in 1838, while a member of Congress from Maine. The book, though a 
small one, seems to be carefully compiled. 

Mr. Backus's Chart of the Chester Family, besides that family, preserves a 
genealogical account of the compiler's ancestors of other names. Among the 
families from which Mr. Backus is descended are many that have an honorable 
record in this country and in England. 

The Alden tabular pedigree gives some lines of the descendant of John Alden 
and of his wife Priscilla Molines, the heroine of Longfellow's famous poem 
"The Courtship of Miles Standish." 

The tabular pedigrees of the Hunnewell and Welles families are by Mr. 
Ruggles of Wakefield, Mass. The Hunnewell Family is descended from Roger 
Hunnewell, who came to New England at an early date, and died in 1C5I ; 
and the Welles Family from Thomas Welles of Hartford, an early governor of 
Connecticut. They seem to be carefully compiled, and are handsomely printed.. 

The children of Edward Tompkins, senior, to whose ancestry and kindred the 
next pamphlet is devoted, were descended from John Tompkins, an early settler 
of Concord, Mass. The work is well compiled, and a number of tabular pedi- 
grees make the descent and kinship clear to its readers. 

The Howes pamphlet is by Mr. Sanford, 4oI Ostrom Avenue, Syracuse, N. Y. 
John Howes, whose branch of the Howes family he here traces, was a de- 
scendant of Thomas Howes, who settled at Yarmouth, Mass. in 1G39. The 
genealogy is well compiled.

The pamphlet on Capt. John Daves contains an interesting account of that 
revolutionary patriot. A genealogy of his descendants is appended. 

The Benjamin Brown Memorial traces the ancestry of Dr. Brown, who was 
descended from Chad Brown, who settled early at Providence, R. I. The 
pamphlet gives an account of the life of Dr. Benjamin Brown, and a full record 
of his descendants. The work is carefully compiled and handsomely printed. 

The fourth part of Eben Putnam's History of the Putnam Family is just 
issued. It contains the record of children of "the sixth generation. 

The pamphlet on the Descendants of Jonathan Giliet is a reprint from the 
April number of the Register.

Mr. Clapp, the senior member of the firm that has printed the New-England 
Historical and Genealogical Register for over twenty-eight years, died at 
hi> residence in South Boston on Wednesday, May 10. 189*3, aged eighty-seven 
years, Mr. Clapp v, i - a raei iber of the " Regist c i lub,' v. hich in 1 lie autumn 
of 1SG4 assumed the pecuniary responsibility of publishing the Register for the 





Society (ante, vol. 30, page 185). Mr. Clapp was much interested in historical 
and £renealogical subjects, and was one of the publishing committee of the Clapp 
Memorial, issued in 1876. His knowledge and ta^te have been of much service 
to the several editors of the Register. •• Mr. Clapp was a man of many virtues, 
of strict uprightness and integrity, respected and beloved by all who knew 
him." He was a warden of St. Matthew's Church, South Boston, for nearly half 
a century. 

A memoir by William Blake Trask, A.M., with a portrait, will appear in a 
subsequent number of the Register. 


Mr. Daniel Clemext Coresworthy died 
at his residence in Chestnut Street, 
Chelsea, Mass.. April 1, 1S93, in his 
S3d year. He was the second son of 
Daniel Pecker and Anna (Collins) 
Colesworthy, and was born at Port- 
land, Me., July 14, IS 10. An obituary 
of his father is printed in the Register, 
vol. 6, pp. 339-90, and his pedigree in 
vol. 15 of this work, page 330. He 
learned the trade of a printer of Arthur 
Shirley, who printed the Christian 
Mirror, a religious newspaper still pub- 
lished in Portland. Soon after attain- 
ing his majority he opened a printing 
office in Middle street, and began the 
publication of a juvenile weekly called 
the Sabbath Sc/'.ool Instructor. He 
published other newspapers, the best 
known of which was the Portland 
Tribune, a weekly literary paper which 
he founded in 1811. He edited and 
published it for four years, and then 
sold it to others who continued the 
publication. About this time he opened 
a bookstore in Exchange street, winch 
was afterwards removed to the base- 
ment of tiie Mariner's Church in Fore 
street. In 1S-50 he removed to Boston, 
Mass., and opened a bookstore in 
Cornhili, where he continued to carry 
on the bookselling business till his 
death. He lived to be the oldest book- 
seller in Boston. His bookstore was 
frequented by many men of note. He 
counted among his personal friends 
Charles Sumner, Henry W.Longfellow, 
William Lioyd Garrison, Xeal Dow, 
Nathaniel P. Banks, Ehas Na.^on, John 
Pierpont, Elizabeth Oakes Smith, 
George Henry Preble, Wendeli Phillips 
and John Neal. 

He began early to write in verse and 
prose, and continued to employ his 
leisure in literary composition to the 
end of his days. He was a frequent 
contributor to literary and religious 
newspapers and some articles were 
.sent to edit'-r- just before his death, 

and were printed after he died. He 
was a voluminous writer and published 
many books. Many of his shorter 
poems had a wide circulation in the 
newspapers, and some found their way 
into hymn books and school readers, 
often anonynously. Some have been 
attributed to other well known authois. 
This was the case with " Little words 
in kindness spoken," and 5 ' Never say 
fail." His poem " Don't kill the birds " 
is said to have had " great influence in 
arresting the slaughter of those inno- 
cents by inculcating in the minds of 
children a sentiment of mercy towards 

Among his published works may be 
named "The Old Bureau and other 
Tales " ; " Sabbath School Hymns " ; 
" Chronicles of Casco Bay " ; " A Group 
of Children " ; " A Day in the Woods " ; 
" School is Out," and " John Tileston's 
School." In Duyckinck's "Cyclopaedia 
of American Literature (ed. 187o, vol. 
2, page 514), this estimate of him as a 
writer is found : " His writings in prose 
and verse are adapted to the people, and 
are generally on topics of familiar do- 
mestic interest. His tales, of which he 
composed many, illustrate the morali- 
ties of common life somewhat in the 
school of Franklin ; while his poems, 
written with ease and simplicity, em- 
brace the ever- enduring themes of the 

Mr. Colesworthy married, at Port- 
land, Miss Mary Jane, daughter of John 
and Prudence (Richardson) bowers, 
who was born in Cambridge, Mass., 
Sept. 26, 1812, and died at Chelsea, 
May 27, 1874. Their children were: 
1, Daniel Clement; 2, Mary Jane; 3, 
Charles Jenkins; 4, Eden Maria, m. 
Charles W. Cochrane; o, George Ed- 
ward; 6, Harriet Ann, m. fhomas L.

All the children are living except the 
oldest, Daniel C, who died April 1, 




Mrs. Martha. Joanna Lamb died in New 
York city on Monday morning, January 
2, 1893, aged 63. She * as the daugh- 
ter of Arvin and Lucinda (Vinton) 
Nash, and was bom August 13, 1829. 
She married Sept. 8, 18-52. Charles A. 
Lamb of Maumee City, Ohio. They 
removed to Chicago, where she resided 
eight years. In 1886, she took up her 
residence in New York City. 

Our American republic of letters has 
met with a distinct loss in the death of 
Mrs. Lamb. Although residing for 
many years past in New York city, she 
was born in Plainrield, Massachusetts, 
and doubtless owed much of her love 
of learning to her long line of New 
England ancestry, and also, perhaps, to 
the strain of Gallic blood in her family, 
giving warmth and enthusiasm, or more 
properly speaking, the expression of 
these attributes, to the more solid and 
staying qualities of her English blood. 
At a very early age she was an ardent 
lover of books, especially of historical 
studies, and this increased and devel- 
oped as the years went on and she 
gradually gathered rich stores of knowl- 
edge which she dispensed in her writ- 
ings. Hers was eminently a literary 
life, and she loved literature for its own 
sake and for the great results wrought by 
it. She not only acquired much know- 
ledge but produced the results of her re- 
searches for the benefit of others. She 
wrote many stories and several books 
for children, thus, like Miss Alcott and 
others, showing a peculiar gift, for it 
must ever be remembered that it is a 
great thing to be able to interest and 
therefore to stimulate and instruct the 
child-mind, a mind far more acute and 
imaginative in many ways than many 
are willing to admit. "Who can measure 
in after life the results of seed- thoughts 
early sown in the mind: 

It is estimated that she wrote about 
one hundred magazine articles on his- 
torical and other subjects. She is also 
quite well known in a somewhat limited 
circle, by her books entitled " Historic 
Homes of America,'' " Wall Street in 
History," and her " History of the City 
of New York." But probably her best 
and most far-reaching work has been 
done as contributor to and later as 

editor of the "Magazine of American 
History," that admirable periodical 
which has rendered such useful service 
in disseminating knowledge of Ameri- 
can history throughout the land, than 
which (next to the implanting of the 
principles of Christianity itself), there 
can hardly be a more praiseworthy 
work. Mrs. Lamb was quite proficient 
in mathematics, and perhaps owed con- 
siderable of her mental development, 
her accuracy as an historian, to the 
training she derived from this source. 
Neither must it be forgotten that dur- 
ing: a residence of several years in 
Chicago she did much toward the 
founding of the Home for the Friend- 
less and Half- Orphan Asylum in that 
city. She also rendered efficient help 
to the cause of the Union during the 
civil war. I must not omit to acknowl- 
edge my indebtedness for material for 
the preparation of this sketch to the 
Rev. Daniel Van Pelt for his excellent 
biographical notice of Mrs. Lamb which 
appeared in the Magazine of American 
History for February last.

that he could not get any more light on the question of a possible connection 
of this family with our Koxbury family of Davis. The will of Robert Davis of 
Little Sodbury was proved 1680 (Bath, 78). In both cases the signature was

[I would suggest that the testatrix of the above will was the widow of An- 
thony Thatcher referred to by his In-other Thomas as " in the Separation " (see 
Reg. vol. 47, p. 131). The rather odd name Clarey (Claree), the bequest of 
twenty •• gilders," the reference to a friend as a i; Brother in the fayth," and to 
a son-in-law as '• of Amsterdam," all seem to show this. Let me say, too. that 
I have had the references to those Thatcher wills already printed, for nearly 
ten years, and only refrained from publishing them long ago for the reason that 
I felt so extremely doubtful as to the identity of Anthony Thatcher. I could 
not believe thai the Anthony Thatcher who was "in the Separation" was our

OCTOBER, 1893. 


By the Editor of the Register. 

Jeremiah Colburn was born in the town of Boston, Massachusetts, 
January 12. 1815. His father was Calvin Colburn, a native of 
Leominster, Mass., whose father, Nathan Colburn, was a soldier in 
the war of the Revolution. His mother's maiden name was Catharine 
Sybil Lakin. Siie was the youngest child of Isaac and Mary (Law- 
rence) Lakin, and was born at Groton, Mass., May 20. 17 SO. 
They were married at Groton, April 20, 1S00. 

Mr. Colburn received his education at the public schools of his 
native town. His first attendance was at a primary school in 1820, 
when he was five years old. He continued in the primary and 
grammar schools till the year 1830. Among the schools which lie 
attended were the Bowdoin in Berne street, and the Mayhew in 
Hawkins street. 

Soon after leaving school he became a clerk in the store of Seth 
J. Thoma3, a dealer in hats, at Xo. 60 Washington street, on the 
eastern side, a few doors north of State street. As a clerk he 
made himself useful, was attentive to his duties, and endeavored 
to acquire a thorough knowledge of the business. In the year 
1810, Mr. Thomas gave up his business to engage m other pursuits, 
and Mr. Colburn, then a young man of twenty -five years, succeeded 
him. He was strictly honest in his dealings, and made it for the 
interest of purchasers to trade with him. They found that he con- 
sulted their interests as well as his own. They became friends as 
well as customers. He carried on the business successfully for 
over twelve years. 

On the 8th of March. 1853, Mr. Colburn was appointed by 
President Franklin Pierce one of the United States Appraisers in 
the Custom House for the port of Boston. Accepting the office, he

426 Jeremiah Colburn. [Oct. 

gave up his business to attend to it, and entered at once on its duties, 
performing them with scrupulous fidelity. He won the confidence of 
the merchants of Boston who had dealings with him, as well as that 
of his fellow officials. He was faithful to his trust, but performed 
his duties in a courteous and conciliatory manner. 

He retired from the office in June, 1861. After this he engaged 
in no regular business, but spent much of his time in literary and 
antiquarian pursuits. 

He early developed a taste for collecting coins, minerals and shells. 
The " Cyclopaedia of American Literature " says of him : 

At the a^e of fifteen he besran to form a collection of coins, which was, 
at first, as might be expected, of a miscellaneous character. Subsequently, 
without abandoning his former pursuit, he turned his attention to minerals 
and shells, and lastly to books, autographs, manuscripts, portraits and en- 
gravings relating to America, including colonial and continental money, 
supplemented by early and recent issues of paper tokens, from one penny 
upwards. At the suggestion of Joseph G. Morris of Philadelphia, who was 
lost at sea in the steamer " Arctic" on her passage from Liverpool in 1854, 
he began a collection of bank notes, including those of broken banks and 
the counterfeit bills of the period, his friend believing the day to be not 
far distant when paper money would be among the things of the past, or at 
least of great rarity.* 

Hi3 collection of coins and medals in 1863, after spending a third 
of a century in gathering it, had become extensive and valuable. It 
included some of the finest and rarest of early American coins. Of 
Greek and Roman coins he had also a valuable collection. His 
medals included some of the rarest specimens, and those of the most 
elaborate workmanship. In that year Mr. Colburn disposed of a 
large proportion of his collection. He retained, however, many 
choice pieces, to which from time to time he made additions. 

The gathering of these coins and medals was a good school for 
him, as he was thereby led to study the history of the nations by 
which they were struck, and particularly of his own country. He 
acquainted himself with the leading events commemorated by the 
coins of Greece and Rome. The faces of the old emperors, as por- 
trayed by their mint-masters, became familiar to him. The medals 
and coins of the mother country led him to study her annals, and 
the leading events in the lives of her heroes and statesmen, espec- 
ially as related to his favorite science. 

His library of historical books and pamphlets relating to America 
was large, but his collection of autographs and prints was more 
remarkable. It was especially rich in American specimens, and 
was very valuable in a historical point of view. 

Mr. Colburn became an expert in the subject of his studies, and 
was looked upon as an authority on the rarity and value of coin3 and

delphia, 1875, vol. 2, page 859.

medals. His opinion was also sought as to the value of autographs, 
historical documents and rare Americana. This was cheerfully 
given, and as he made no pretence to knowledge which he did not 
possess, his opinion could safely be relied on. He knew either per- 
sonally or by correspondence the most eminent collectors. 

In I860, he and some of his friends interested in numismatics 
associated themselves together for the study of that science, and took 
the name of the Boston Numismatic Society. The society was 
organized March 3, I860. Winslow Lewis, M.D., was chosen the 
president, and Mr. Colburn the vice-president. In 1865 Dr. Lewis 
resigned, and Mr. Colburn was elected president. He held this 
office over a quarter of a century till his death, when he was succeeded 
as president by the Hon. Samuel Abbott Green, M.D., who now 
holds the position. 

In the spring of 1870 he was one of a committee of the Boston 
Numismatic Society to assume the publication of the American Journal 
of Numismatics. This periodical had been begun by the American 
Numismatic and Archaeological Society of New York city, and till 
this time had been published by that society. The Journal had 
then been published four years, the first number bearing the date of 
May, 1866. The work was originally issued as The American Jour- 
nal of Numismatics and Bulletin of the American Numismatic and 
Archaeological Society. In May, 1869, the sub-title was changed to 
Bulletin of American Numismatic and Archaeological Societies. While 
issued by the projectors and original publishers four volumes were 
completed. They then relinquished it to the committee above 
named, which consisted of three persons. Mr. Colburms associates 
were William Sumner Appleton, A.M., and Samuel Abbott Green, 
M.D. They continued the publication for twenty-one years, their 
first issue being dated July, 1870, and their last April, 1891. Mr. 
Colburn was the business manager as well as one of the editorial 
committee. It was by his persistent energy and industry that the 
Journal was able to be issued so regularly for that long period of 

The twenty-one volumes of the Journal issued under Mr. Colburn's 
charge are a monument of his zeal and devotion to the science. The 
Journal, both before and after his connection with it, has been a very 
useful periodical. It has been, and remains, a medium of inter-com- 
munication for the many collectors scattered throughout this country, 
and has brought their writings to the attention of the numismatists of 
Europe. It has advanced the study of numismatics by bringing out 
able articles from the pens of specialists, and by collecting a mass 
of valuable matter illustrating the various phases of a science which 
numbers so many learned men among its disciples. A writer in the 

* The American Journal of Numismatics is now published by Messrs. T. R. Marvin & 
Ron, and is edited by William T. R. Marvin, A.M. The Messrs. Marvin have printed the 
Journal from 1870 until the present time. 

428' Jeremiah Colburn. [Oct. 

Register for July, 1S71, speaks of the Journal as of the highest 
authority in its department, and adds: "It aims to impart elevation 
and dignity to the study of coins and medals, by giving due promi- 
nence to their historical character and value. "* It has given special 
attention to descriptions of medals, particularly those relating to 
American history, including lists of Washington, Franklin, Lincoln 
and other personal medals; while its catalogues of Canadian, 
Masonic and Medical medals are frequently referred to by collectors 
in this country and abroad. Some of these were undertaken at Mr. 
Colburn's suggestion, and all with his hearty sympathy. 

In January, 1857, the Historical Magazine, a monthly periodical 
devoted to the antiquities, history and biography of America, was 
commenced in Boston, and Mr. Colburn was an early contributor 
to its pages. At the request of the writer of this memoir, who was 
the editor of the magazine, he prepared for it a number of articles 
on American coins and coinage. These were supplemented by valu- 
able historical documents drawn from his rare collection of auto- 
graphs and other manuscripts. For several years he furnished short 
articles for the department of "Notes and Queries/' which were 
highly appreciated. 

On the 4th of November, 1S57, he was elected a resident member 
f; of the New-England Historic Genealogical Society, and took an 
active part in its affairs. lie served on the committee on finance 
from 1859 to 1862, on the library committee from 1SG2 to 1877, 
and on the committee on publication from 1874 to 1889. He was 
chairman of the committees on finance and the library. For twenty- 
seven years, from ISG2 to 1889, he was a member of the board of 
directors, whose duty was to conduct the prudential and executive 
business of the Society. He was a member of the Register Club 
during the whole period of if 3 existence, from 1865 to 1874. This 
Club for ten years bore the financial responsibility of publishing the 
New-England Historical and Genealogical Register. 

He was a contributor to the Register for more than a quarter 
of a century, and many valuable articles by him appear in its pages. 
u In 1866," says Duyckinck's Cyclopaedia of American Litera- 
ture, "at the request of the Rev. Eiias Nason, then editor of the 
Register, and other fellow members of the New-England Historic 
Genealogical Society, he commenced the compilation of a catalogue 
of works on the local history of Massachusetts, which was published 
in successive numbers of the Register, and was subsequently issued 
in a royal octavo volume of 119 pag'js, under the title of " Biblio- 
graphy of the Local History of Massachusetts. r t The first number 
of this series appeared in the Register for January, 1867, and the 
last in that for April, 1871. Finding that the work proved a great

aid to those investigating the history of the state and its several 
towns, Mr. Colburn began collecting materials for a new and much 
enlarged edition of the work, but he did not find time to prepare it 
for the press. 

He was one of the founders of the Prince Society, organized in 
1858, whose object is the "preserving and extending the knowledge 
of American history, by editing and printing such manuscripts, rare 
tracts and volumes as are mostly confined in their use to historical 
students and public libraries.'' The Rev. Dr. Slafter thus speaks 
of the advantages of such a society: 

Every careful historical student is fully aware that there exists in this 
country and in England a mass of matter in the form of legal documents, 
charters, tracts and letters, which are inaccessible, or of very great rarity, 
but nevertheless indispensable to a correct knowledge of our early history. 
"While these papers are scattered, and some of them perhaps unknown, they 
are not only liable, but pretty sure to be overlooked, and in consequence 
the historian is equally sure to fall into error. It is the object of this society 
to collect together these papers, fragments of a complete whole, and print 
them in volumes, carefully and fully annotated, so that the historical student 
may have the whole subject before him at once.* 

Samuel G. Drake, A.M., the historian, of Boston, was chosen the 
firsi? president. Mr. Colburn was chosen a vice-president, and held 
the office from 1859 to 1863, when he was chosen treasurer. This 
office he held till 1873, when he resigned. He was the publishing 
committee for the second volume issued by the society, namely, 
Wood's New-England's Prospect, a foolscap quarto of 131 pages. 
Mr. Colburn lived to see twenty volumes of the society's publications 
issued, and several others in preparation by competent editors. 

He was one of those who met in 1879, by invitation of Mr. Whit- 
more, to form the "'Boston Antiquarian Club." He continued a mem- 
ber of this Club till its dissolution in December, 1881, a new asso- 
ciation called the " Bostonian Society " having been formed under its 
auspices by the members. Of this society, whose object is " to 
promote the study of the history of Boston, and the preservation of 
its antiquities," he was an original member. The government of the 
city of Boston in 1882 placed the control of the Council Chamber 
and the Hall of Representatives in the Old State House in the custody 
of this society. The society took possession of these halls in June. 
1882, with appropriate ceremonies. It has gathered within those 
historic wails a remarkable collection of articles illustrating the 
history of this city. Mr. Colburn was a life member of this society, 
and a liberal contributor to its treasures. 

Mr. Colburn was either an honorary or a corresponding member 
of the following state Historical Societies, and probably of others : 
Virginia, New Hampshire, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. He was

430 Jeremiah Colburn, [Oct. 

a corresponding member of the Numismatic and Antiquarian Society 
of Philadelphia, and was elected an honorary member of the 
American Numismatic and Archaeological Society of New York, 
Dec. 23, 18G7. He was also honored by an election as "Foreign 
Associate " (Associe etranger) of the Royal Belgian Numismatic 
Society. In 18G9 Williams College conferred upon him the honorary 
degree of Master of Arts. 

We do not know the politics of Mr. Colburn's father, but his em- 
ployer, Mr. Thomas, was a democrat, and numbered among his inti- 
mate friends most of the leading democrats of the state. Mr. Col- 
burn when a boy saw much of them, and secured their friendship and 
regard. He became a firm and zealous believer in the principles of 
the democratic party as interpreted by the supporters of Gen. Jack- 
son, and held them with tenacity to the close of his life. Bat he 
was never a bigoted partizan, and many of his political opponents 
were his personal friends. He studied and became familiar with 
the politics of the country, state and town. He had a fund of anec- 
dotes of prominent politicians in the middle of the present century 
with whom he was acquainted, and it was interesting and instructive 
to listen to his reminiscences. 

Mr. Colburn was a keen observer of men and manners, and the 
\ events of his earlier years were firmly impressed in his memory. 
His recollections of the Boston of former days were extremely vivid, 
and he often entertained his hearers with descriptions of the customs 
which prevailed when he was a boy and young man. He could de- 
scribe the celebrities with rare skill, and place them and their pecu- 
liarities distinctly before your eyes. 

Mr. Seth J. Thomas furnishes the following estimate of his 
character : 

The biography of Jeremiah Colburn may be written in a few words, yet 
much good may be said of him. I knew him from his boyhood to his 
death. lie had no place with the conspicuous. He was not an orator who 
tried to persuade others of what he did not believe; nor a general whose 
merit was that he never fought a battle; nor a politician whose success was 
better than his cau.-e; nor an inventor who obtained many patents for what 
was not useful. He did not travel much. He neither sailed to the North 
pole nor under the Southern cross; but he early sought wisdom and found 
it right here at home. lie was honest in the bone. h\ act and speech he 
was sincere. His nature was kindly. He loved his friends, and he had 
not an euemy on the earth. With his other getting he got understanding. 
His insight was clear. He saw virtue in riches honestly acquired, and he 
got rich honestly. He cared for his widowed mother and his younger and 
dependent brother, and they called him blessed. He lived frugally and 
soberly. He saved a part of what he earned. He was careful in his in- 
vestments. He was fond of art, of paintings, statuary, and good books. 
He was acquainted with ancient coins. He loved whatever was loveable, 
and the most loveable he loved most. His home was beautiful ; his grounds 
charming, and his house a pattern of elegance and refinement. If one asked, 
how is it that one with so small an income became rich, the answer was : 

1893.] Jeremiah Colburn. 431 

He saved every year a part of what he earned. This was all the secret of 
his wealth. As an appraiser in the Customs his salary was only two thous- 
and dollars a year. Appointed under the administration of President 
Pierce, he held that place eight years, and was removed early in the ad- 
ministration of President Lincoln. As an appraiser he was attentive, in- 
telligent, impartial and inst, and always a gentleman; but the exigencies of 
party, and not unfitness, were supposed to require his removal. He took 
no pains to retain his place, but left to those who deny all belief in the 
theory that the spoils belong to the victors, to practice it, nevertheless, 
without complaint, upon him; since, although he never believed in that 
theory himself, he did believe, as a man of sense, that an administration, to 
be successful, is entitled to have its friends in positions to aid it. 

One morning, unexpectedly to others, but not so to him, he departed. 
Whither? Dr. Brown-Sequard said to me, '"There is nothing vital which 
is not material." "Well," said I, "suppose that be so, is there nothing 
material which is not visible?" Dr. Brown-Sequard was in a hurry and 
did not wait to answer. Eat I ask: Who has analyzed the human mind 
on its way to God? 1 am of the year 1807, and I suppose I know as much 
about this matter as most men. I cannot say that 1 know, but I believe; 
and that. I suppose, must suffice to me. But I also believe a day will come 
when men will know. It was once said : " The wind bloweth where it 
listeth; we hear the sound thereof, but cannot tell whence it cometh nor 
whither it goeth." But now we know that the wind does not blow where 
it listeth, but is governed by a law; and we can tell from whence it cometh 
and whither it goeth, and how fast it goes ; and since it is not uncommon to 
infer more than is proved, I think it is not unwise to believe in the exist- 
ence of more than we can see. That is my case. I commend the thought 
to others. 

The Hon. Samuel Abbott Green, M. D., formerly mayor of Boston, 
furnishes these reminiscences : 

My acquaintance with Mr. Colburn began, nearly fifty years ago, at 
Groton, of which town his mother was a native, and where, too, he had a 
married sister (Mrs. Woolley) then living. I was considerably his junior 
in age, but I remember well the kindly interest he took at that time in my 
boyish tastes. Later I used to meet him often, during my college days, at 
the shop of John Warren, an elderly Englishman, who was a conchologist, 
of some local note, and the author of a little book on Shells. Mr. Warren's 
place of business was in School Street, and, besides specimens in his partic- 
ular line, he kept for sale coins, autographs, engravings, and Indian relics; 
and here my further acquaintance with Mr. Colburn was continued, which 
lasted without interruption till the day of his death. During this long 
period our relations were often close, and at no time was there ever a 
shadow of difference or dispute between us. In all our dealings together I

continually asserting itself; and he never was so happy as when doing a

impression that he himself. was the person under obligation.

George A. Gordon, A.M., of* Somerville, Mass.. recording secretary 
of the New-England Historic Genealogical Society, writes of him as 
follows : 

Mr. Colburn was* city bred, and his urbane politeness was a mnrked 
feature in his character. Genial and hospitable, the same entertaining wel- 
come was extended to all. A North-end boy and youth, his memory re- 
tained in vivid recollection not only the principal events in Boston's entire 
history as a city, but could reproduce in clear descriptive portraiture the 
chief citizens, locate their homes and their places of business. Gifted 
largely with the antiquarian spirit, he collected widely, and became an 
authority on manuscripts, autographs, coins and other memorials of the 
past. Mr. Colburn was no aristocrat. His ancestry had been upon Massa- 
chusetts soil since 1635, out of which they had earned comfortable and 
honorable living by industrious, personal toil. They subdued the wilder- 
ness, fought the Indian, the French and the British, with zeal and effort to 
advance popular liberty, but without malignity. Devotedly attached to his 
native city and state, he viewed with abhorrence the fanatical zeal which 
shaded the glorious events in their histories, undermined the sacredness of 
^-public obligations, and corrupted the generous impulses of the people. 

John S. H.Fogg, M.D. of South Boston, who shares Mr. Colburn's 
tastes, says in a brief note received since this memoir was written: 

He was one of the very few men whom I have met in my life-time in 
whom 1 felt that I could confide without reserve. I always felt that my 
reputation and character would find in him a vigorous defender, if attacked 
in my absence. He was the same true frieud behind my back as before 
my face. 

Mr. Colburn died at the Copley Square Hotel, Boston, where he 
was temporarily residing, on Wednesday, December 30, 1891, in his 
77th year. A biographical sketch was printed in the American 
Journal of Numismatics for January, 1S92. This sketch was re- 
printed in pamphlet form. An obituary of him appeared also in the 
Revue Beige Numismatique, published at Brussels, the second number 
for 1892, page 314. 

He married April 30, 1846, Miss Eliza Ann Blackman, daughter 
of Mr. John Blackman of Dorchester, a descendant of John Black- 
man who settled in Dorchester in 1654, and bailiff of that town in 
1662. Her mother's maiden name was Eliza Thurston Pollard. 
Mr. Blackman died when his daughter was a young girl, and his 
widow married Mr. Edward Asa Raymond of Boston, who died at 
Brookline, August 1, 1864. Mrs. Ravmond, the mother of Mrs. 
Colburn. died in that town August 24, 1801. Mr. and Mrs. Colburn 
had one .son, John Blackman Colburn, who died an infant March 19,

Mr, Colburn was an honest and upright man in every respect as 
was shown in all his business transactions. He had generous 
impulses and was ever ready to aid those whom he believed were 
deserving of his assistance. His keen common sense and knowledge 
of human nature, however, prevented him from being a dupe of 
designing men. He was a man of strong attachments and always 
loyal to his friends. He was much consulted by persons in search of 
facts relating to family or local history and other antiquarian subjects, 
and at all times his services were readily and cheerfully given. His 
charming manners and agreeable ways will long be remembered, 
and his loss felt in many circles. In his death a gentleman of the 
old school passed away.

Thomas Vt 




By Chahles Edward Banks, M. D. 

The tie roc- vis aged person looking at us from these pages is 
that Thomas Venner who came among ms quite early in the emigra- 
tion to New England, and pursued at Salem and Boston the quiet 

and respectable 
trade of cooper. 
The artist has not, 
however, delinea- 
ted him with his 
adze and draw- 
shave as pictorial 
accessories to aid 
in the counterfeit 
presentment of the 
man and his occu- 
pation, but the 
instrument in his 
hands is an ins- 
trument of death. 
It is to hew down 
the enemies of the 
millenium, and 
not to shape barrel 
staves ; for what- 
ever he may have 
been here as a 
citizen and a theo- 
logian, it is cer- 
tain that, after he 
left us, he develop- 
ed certain quali- 
ties of belief which 
made him, for a 
brief space, the

talk of London.

freeman the next month.* He was a juryman 1638 and 1640, f and 
was sworn as a constable the "10 of 6 mo., 1642. "J He had a lot 

of forty acres in the town, and pursued there the trade of cooper.? 
but early evinced that restless religions spirit which was so conspicu- 
ous in his later career. Felt says that ; die endeavored,, as the head 
of a company, to persuade others to leave Massachusetts for Provi- 
dence, Bahama Islands, to sustain the churches there." || What was 
the moving cause of his departure from Salem does not appear. Per- 
haps, finding himself in the ecclesiastical frying pan at Salem, he 
had the temerity to tempt the puritanical fire at Boston, into which 
he jumped about 1644, and from thence he may be found at his 
"new house" on the water front, on land purchased of Edward Tyng, 
near the present Custom House at the foot of State street. He de- 
scribes his house as a "mansion sixty-two foot long and twenty foote 
wide" on the "high street." *J He became a member of the Artillery 
Company in 1645,** where he perhaps gained his first knowledge of 
the art of warfare which he put into execution sixteen years later. 
Nothing of record appears worthy of note for some years concerning 
him, except as an occasional witness to deeds, or the bringing of a 
child to baptism. He pursued his vocation of cooper, and doubt- 
less provided the barrels for the brewery of Edward Tyng, his land- 
lord and next neighbor. On October IS, 164S 7 '-Thomas Venner. 
John Mileham, Samuel Bedfield, James Mattuck, Willi: Cutter, Bar- 
tholo : Barlow, and the rest of the coopers of Boston & Charles- 
towne," were granted leave to "meete together" for the purpose oi 
incorporating themselves into a guild for mutual protection and for 
the benefit of the public, and to prevent abuses in trade. This act 
was to remain in force three years unless sooner terminated. ft The 
recital of his name at the head of the list is a recognition of his lead- 
ership among the coopers, and not an accidental priority, for he was, 
as subsequent events showed, a leader of men. He remained in 
Boston three years longer, but from an entry in the First Church 
records, as late as 1649, he was still held aloof from church mem- 
bership, being called '•from the church of Salem. "%$ . Undoubtedly the 
Boston brethren had known of Vernier's schismatic tendencies in 
Salem, and were not anxious to become sponsors for him in Boston. 
It may be supposed that he found himself among an unsympathetic 
people, and failing to leaven or be leavened, he threw down his tools 
and left us for good. The date of his final hegira is determined by 
the following document: §§

This document was dated 12 October, 1651, and the General 
Court then in session took the following action upon the petition two 
days later : 

"In answer to the petition of Thomas Venner, for the hearinge of a case 
betweene M r Gayner & himselfe, that so he be not hindred in his voyage, 
but have both himself & shipp cleared, it (is) ordered, that the s d shippe be 
freed, & y* M r Venner, or whom else it concernes, give iu securitie of one 
hundred pound to the county court, to be responsall to answer M r Gayner 
in the action in a court of justice.''* 

And so Master Venner, in October, 1651, sailed away to England. 
The General Court said of him some years later, -Venner (not to 
say whence he came to us) went out from us because he was not of 
us."f Probably his talents were not appreciated here, and after his 
arrival in England no sound of him is heard in London for five years 
more, when a deed recorded in our registry describes him as a 
"cooper" still, from which we are to infer the industrious pursuit of 
his work among barrels, casks and tuns in the English capital.. But 
this peaceful situation is not for long. In 1657 he had, by gradual 
force of his strong character, attained leadership in a band of fanati- 
cal religionists worshipping in a "'conventicle" in Coleman street in 
the great metropolis. They called themselves "Fifth Monarchy 
Men,'' or were so described by the writers of the period, because 
they held the belief that the four great kingdoms, Assyrian, Persian, 
Macedonian and Roman, which had successively possessed the do- 
minions of earth, had passed away, and that their duty was to pro- 
claim and establish the new Kingdom of Christ upon earth, or the

Millenium, according to the mystical chapters in the Book of Revela- 
tion. Venner preached this doctrine to his followers and roused 
them to a pitch of frenzy by his fiery zeal for this fantastic doctrine. 
To such an extent did he carry his denunciations of the Protector 
and his government, that he began to be taken seriously, and after a 
publication of the intentions of his party in a printed pamphlet. 
Cromwell had him arrested as a conspirator against the peace of 
the Commonwealth, At this time Royalist plots for restoration 
were being exploited, and it was deemed advisable to stop any 
fomentations of whatever character in their incipiency. Rev. Wil- 
liam Hooke, in a letter to John Winthrop, Jr., dated 13 April, 1 657. 
thus describes the incident: 

"The other conspiracy was discovered the last week. It was carried on 
by tumultuous, outrageous, discontented men, pretending to fifth monarchy, 
but discovering in their declaration (which is in print) a bloody spirit, 
though under a specious shew. Some of them were lately apprehended as 
they were praying, ready to set forward in a hostile manner to gather to- 
gether in a body, having accordingly furnished themselves. In this design, 
one Vennour, not long since dwelling in your Boston, a wine cooper, is a 
principal actor, who, being brought before the protector, spoke and behaved 
himself with as great impudence, insolence, pride and railing as (I think) 
you ever heard of."* 

Probably Venner was not judicially tried, as no record of it has 
been found by me. Cromwell, who had been dealing with ecclesias- 
tical and political '-cranks'' for many years, doubtless saw in this 
cooper's visionary "railing" the evidence of a mild religious mania 
rather than a royalist conspiracy, and Venner presumably escaped 
with a few morsels of friendly warning from ''Ironsides." At all 
events, this interview served to keep Mr. Venner and his followers 
quiet for three years, during which time the great Oliver was fol- 
lowed by the little Richard, and he in turn by the motley cabal 
which finally invited Charles Stuart to resume the throne of his an- 
cestors. It was a period of political, moral and social unrest, and 
such seasons always develop or afford the opportunity for monstrous 
doctrines of every kind to develop in all their virulence. It gave an 
opportunity for Venner to display himself once more at the head of 
his little band of Coleman street conventiclers, and he hold up to 
them in his public address that the restoration of the Merry Monarch 
was a distinct elevation of an Antichrist. This time he led them to 
their fatal '-Dance of Death." About the first of January, 1661, the 
Fifth Monarchists had been approaching a climax. Venner was 
preaching with unrestrained license amid fasting and prayer, and 
they determined to follow his campaign by going forth armed and 
proclaiming the establishment of the Kingdom ot Jesus, and killing 
those who made any resistance to their programme. They sallied 
forth about midnight of the 6th, less than half a hundred in number.

though from the noise they made, the damage they did to life and 
limb, and their faculty of ubiquitousness, Pepys thought they num- 
bered u at least 500. :! * Their war cry was, "Live King Jesus," and 
following a banner bearing the motco, "For the Lord God and 
Gideon/' they rapidly rushed from street to street, interspersing 
their war cry with shouts of -Their heads upon the gates 1" This 
startling cry, together with the manner and temper of the men. had 
what seems now an absurd effect. Everybody fled from before the 
vicious band. The stupid old night watchmen, with their lanterns on 
poles to light the dingy streets, abandoned their beats to the shout- 
ing crew. One unfortunate person, wending his way homeward, was 
pounced upon and questioned as to his allegiance, and replied, -I am 
for God and King Charles. ; "f The Coleman street crew proceeded 
to establish the Millenium by murdering the man instantly; and so 
on they went in their fanatical career, killing innocent citizens dur- 
ing their mad rush towards the city walls. London was taken by 
surprise, and before it could be aroused to resistance half a dozen 
of its inhabitants were murdered by Yenner and his followers. The 
Fifth Monarchists had now a reason for their faith that Christ was 
their invisible leader and would suffer them no harm, for as yet they 
had not lost a drop of blood. But they did not gather reinforce- 
ments as expected, and finding that the train-bands were being as- 
sembled to meet them, Tenner retreated in good order through High- 
gate to Caen wood, then a dense forest without the city walls, near 
Hampstead. That day and the next the Lord Mayor, Sir Richard 
Browne, marched about the city at the head of the municipal troops 
and volunteers to the number of 40,000, and failing to find them 
pulled down the meeting house in Coleman street. Meanwhile the 
"Fanatiquef,," as Pepys calls them, were planning fresh onslaughts 
in the security of Caen wood. They did not emerge till the early 
hours of the 9th, when a general alarm was sounded. Pepys says, 
"I rose and went forth, where in the street I found everybody in arms 
at the doors." He provided himself with a pistol and strolled down 
to the Exchange with a friend, and learned that these "rogues'" had 
killed about a dozen more people during their sally into the city that 
morning, and had "put the King's life-guards to the run'' and spread 
consternation throughout the entire collection of train-bands. '-Tee 
shops shut and all tilings in trouble," writes the diarist. The King 
was absent in Portsmouth escorting his mother and sister to their 
embarkation for France, and the military management of the riot fell 
to the Duke of Albemarle, but it is not probable that Charles would 
have handled the matter with greater vigor. Again on the 10th 
these insane men broke through the city gates for the second time, 
and started out anew on their bloody work. They traversed nearly 
every street of the great metropolis, defending themselves, with cool-

ness and bravery, bat were finally overwhelmed by numbers and 
were driven from street to street till they took their last stand in a 
house which they had entered in their desperation.* The Lord 
Mayor, at the head of the city militia, did not approve of the plan of 
firing in upon them, perhaps because of the innocent inmates who 
would be the victims of such a course. "At last one Lambert, a sea- 
man, persuaded some of them to follow him and get up on the top of 
the house, "t and after untiling the roof they ''forced an entry that 
way." No quarter was asked or given. Yenner, who was described 
as a powerful man, fought like a fiend incarnate, killing many before 
he fell exhausted with no fewer than nineteen wounds. It was with 
great difficulty that he was kept alive for the punishment that was 
shortly after meted out to him. When these desperadoes were all 
killed or disarmed they were counted, and numbered thirty-one ! "A 
thing that never was heard of," says Pepys, "that so few men should 
dare and do so much." The formality of a trial was accorded them 
immediately, and under due process of law they were arraigned for 
murder and treason. From a contemporary tract the following ac- 
count of the legal proceedings sufficiently describes their trial: 

''On Thursday (January 17) twenty of the prisoners taken in arms were 
arraigned together in justice-hall in the Old Bailey: the rest, being danger- 
ously wounded, were put off by the court for a future trial. These twenty 
arraigned were Thomas Yenner, Roirer Hodgkins, Leonard Gowler, Jonas 
Allen. John Pym, William Oxmau. alias Orsingham, William Ashton, 
Gdes Pritchard, Stephen Fall. John Smith, William Corbet, John Dod, 
John Elston, Thomas Harris, John Gardner, Robert Bryerly, Richard Mar- 
ten, John Patshali, Robert Hopkins and John Weils. These were brought 
to the bar together ; the wounded men had chairs allowed them ; and after 
the indictment read (for murther and treason) ; first Thomas Venuer was 
call'd, who, when he had held up his hand, being ask'd whether he was 
guilty or not guilty, began an extravagant and bottomless discourse about 
the fifth monarchy, and his having had a testimony above twenty years in 
New England (we'll never deny his New England testimony, which has 
made old England smart, having been the nursery and receptacle of sedi- 
tion too long; though Hugh Peters be dead, Gough and Whalley are there 
alive). And Venuer could not deny he was guilty of the late rising, but not 
(forsooth) of treason, intending not to levy war against the King (as it to 
murther both King and subject were no treason, and to destroy their own 
and all Christian monarchs by open force were no levying war against the 
King). Afterwards he confessed he was partly guilty and partly not; but 
being press'd by the court to give his positive answer, whether he was guilty 
in manner and form of the indictment, he answered, Not guilty, and at last 
submitted to a trial by God aud the country ."$ 

The following is some of the essential testimony: 
"At the meeting-house in Swan-alley in Coleman street, Venner, Tufney 
and Cragg, (which two latter were slain in this rebellion) [in the skirmish

in Wood-street] did several times persuade their congregation to take up 
arms for King Jesus, against the powers of the earth, (which were the 
King, the Duke of York, and the General). That they were to kill all that 
opposed them; that they had been praying and preaching, but not acting 
for Goth That divers anmd themselves, at the meeting house in Coleman- 
street, with musquets, blunder-busses, pistols, back, breast and head-piece, 
with powder and bullet, and other war-like weapons: that in the streets 
they cried out against the King, and said, they would fetch out the lord 
mayor of London: that Venner and Pritchard were the chief that led them 
in their engagement, that on Sunday (January 6) they went to St. Paul's, 
where they broke open a door, but, not thinking it a place of safety, they 
went thence; that they fled to St. John's wood, where they reported they 
had made an uproar in London, and came thither for safety; that thence 
they weut to Cane-wood; that on Wednesday (January 9.) Venner was at 
the head of a party in Wood-street, with an haibert in his hand, wherewith 
he struck and (with the rest of the company) kill'd three men there; that 
Venner went with a party to the Compter-gate, and demanded of them to 
turn out' the prisoners, or else they were dead men." 

" Venner confess'd himself in the insurrection, but said, he did not lead 
them, and when the witnesses positively swore it, he excused it, and said, 
'twas not he. but Jesus led them; that he could not deny that most of the 
things witnessed against him were true, yet pleaded that he could not com- 
mit treason because the King was not yet crown'd: but being told by the 
court that every Englishman knows the King never dies, and that that 
opinion was first started by Watson the Jesuit, and long since condemned, 
he pressed it no further." 

All, except the last four, who were arraigned, were found guilty 
as indicted and were sentenced to be drawn, hanged and quartered.* 
Martin, Patshall, Hopkins and Wells were acquitted. The King ex- 
ercised a little clemency in the execution of the sentence, and di- 
rected hanging and beheading for all but Venner and Hodgkins, who 
v/ere to suffer the full tortures of the traitor's death. 

"According to which sentence, on Saturday, January 19, 1661, Venner 
and Hodgkins (both uncured of the wounds they had received in the re- 
bellion) being guarded by two companies of the trained bands, were drawn 
on a sledge i'rem Newgate through Cheapside, over against their meeting- 
house in Swan Alley, in Coleman-street, and executed according to their 
sentence. Venner spoke little but in vindication of himself and his faction, 
and something of his opinion being confident the time was at hand when 
other judgment would be; reflecting much upon the government. The 
other, Hodgkins. raved and cursed in manner of praying, calling down ven- 
geance from heaven upon the King, the judges and the city of London; nor 
would he give over, though the sheriff forbad him to run on in that strange 
way, until the hangman was hastened from his employment of quartering 
V r enner to turn him off; so as in that mad religion they lived in the same 
they died. Their quarters were set upon the four gates of the city by the 
late executed regicides, whose quarrel and revenge they undertook in this 
their phantastique attempt; their heads also set upon poles by some of them 
on London-bridge." f

444 Thomas Venncr. [Oct. 

"Thus ended," wrote a Jacobite author in the early part of the 
next century, ''this rebellion of the Whiggish saints,"* and their ter- 
rifying descent on London was remembered for many years after. 
Dryden, in his Annus Mirabilis, draws a poetic picture of the great 
fire of 1666, and introduces the ghosts of the regicides and of Ten- 
ner's fanatics as rejoicing during the conflagration : 

The ghosts of traitors from the Bridge descend, 

With bold fanatic speeches to rejoice, 
About the fire into a dance they bend, 

And sing their Sabbath notes with feeble voice. 

Of the family of Thomas Yenner there is but little to be said, a3 
no known descendants reside in this country. His wife, whoso name 
was Alice, may have come over with him, and they had the following 
children baptized at Salem and Boston : 

i. Thomas, baptized 16 (3) 1G41 (Salem). 
ii. Hannah, b. 16 (11), baptized 2 (12) 1644 (Boston), 
iii. Samuel, b. 23 (li), baptized 4 (12) 1649 (Boston). 

As these three were all under 10 years of age when he left Boston. 
it is scarcely possible that any one was left behind; nor is the name 
met with again in the early records. His wife survived him, and 
without much doubt is the person referred to in the following entry 
in the Parish Register of St. Dionis Backchurch, London: "Alice 
Venner, widow, carried away to be buried to Tindell's ground, 24 
February 169 J." I have found a slight reminiscence of the fanati- 
cism in Se wall's Diary under date of January 31, 170 h when he re- 
cords: '-'William Parsons of S3 years is buried. Was in the fifth- 
monarchy fray in London, but slipt away in the crowd. "f 

Of the origin of Venner, the following satirical account, taken 
from one of the ephemeral pasquinades of the Restoration period, 
may serve as a fitting conclusion to the story of the fanatical wine- 
cooper of Boston : 

"Now you must know that in those days there lived a Vandal in a wood, 
who was hight Vennero, for when he was born Ins mother left him in this 
wood, being pursued by two blood-thirsty satyrs, who would have done 
something to her, that, it seems, she would not have them do. Now being 
so left there, this sameii young Vandal was suckled by a wild mare, and he 
grew up and fed upon the barkes of trees. Now it came to passe, that in 
processe of time there came a christian wandering to the wood, and he 
rushed forth, and slew him, and drank up his blood, and liked it wondrous 
well, so that he desired to have a whole ocean full, some to keep in hogs- 
heads, for the winter, and some to draw out in bottles for the summer." J

being at anchor in his vessel on the 9th of that month, in a small harbor, about 
three miles distant from •' Nesket," having with him but one Indian, and one 
Englishman (Samuel Trask), the latter redeemed by him from " the Salvages."

Lieutenant of the King's ship."' This was Lieut. Pritchard. Beimj: thus at- 
tacked, he says, and unable to defend himself, he withdrew into the woods, 
forsaking lbs vessel, lie then states, that the commander of said vessel 
called him back, promising not to wrong him at all, saying he was a merchant, 
a trader, " not fitted out for war, especially when there was a talk of peace," 
ami presently set up a flag of truce, even giving him, the said Castiu. ; - a safe

say>. that he went back on board the vessel, with his Indian and Englishman, 
whom he had redeemed from the Indians, as well as the vessel itself, thinking 
he was in a place of safety. As he was about putting on some clothes, to dress 
himself '• more handsomely," the commander told him he was no longer master 
of anything. " They held forth to me," he says, Ji a bag full of bisket that was 
given to me, they said, as a payment for my Englishman." He betook himself 
to his arms, " and after several voleys I kil'd the man" who kept the Indian-, 
and got the latter " safe with me." Castin enumerates the losses for which he 
desires to be reimbursed, namely, " the vessel that costed me 80 French pistoles," 
" the Englishman 10 pistoles," 51 pounds of beaver in the vessel, otter and 
other skins, shot, powder, tobacco, a pair of scales, cloth blankets, bear skins, 
sea wolf skins, axes, kettles, "and several other matters." -"The retaken

[Gov. Dummer, in a letter to Gov. Tallcot, of Connecticut, 29 th Sept. 
1725 (Mass. Arch. 52: 290), says: "It is not strange that there s d be

should make Impressions on the Persons that are in Power in your Colony. 
As to the Causes & Provocations of the War, That subject has been so

the Indians at Arrowsick & any other Papers that I can think of, that have 
not yet been sent. As to the other Charge, of our being loath to come

Governm' is more desireous of, & have accordingly carefully improved every 
Appearance of an Advantage to effect, so that nothing more could be done, 
without making base & Abject submission to the Indians, or, which is much

By Edward Augustus Bowen, Esq., of Woodstock, Conn. 

Griffith Bowen, of Boston, belonged to the family of the ki Bowens 
of Siade," in the parish of Oxwich, Gower, Glamorgan, Wales. I have 
found thr^e pedigrees of this family. The one deposited in the College of 
Arms, London, begins with Beli Mawr, King of Britain, 55 B.C.. and end.3 
with the generation of "Griffith Bowen of Barryhead." The pedigree in 
the Golden Grove Books, at the Public Record Office, London, begins with 
Griffith Gvvyr and ends with "Griff: B: of Buryshade." The "I. H," 
pedigree, possessed by the late Joseph Joseph, Esq., F.S.A., of Brecon, is 
as follows : *

Francis Bowen of Pembroke, 1698. Wm. Bowen of Bristol. 

The first that we know of Griffith Bowen is, that in 1632 he was one of 
a "jurie" in a survey of Oxwich and Nicholas ton ;f and in a survey of 
Penriee, in the same year, it appears that " Gryffith Bowen, gent, houldetb 
freely of sayd manner one messuage and tenem ts of land called Mount

454 Gr iffith Bowen of Boston. [Oct. 

While living on the Gower, 1 May, I63S, Griffith Bowen sold two small 
estates, and bis deed to the property describes the parties and the lands as 

".Griffith Bowen of Oxwicb. gent and Margarett his wife and Ellen 
Francklyn ats Row of the parish of Langenith widdowe of the one partie 
and Samuell Mathewes of Westminster, gent, of the other partie - - - in 

consideration of the some of Three hundred pounds con firm e unto the 

said Samuell Mathewes - - - two several! messuagx and Tents with divers 
parcells of landx - - - comonly called and known by the several! names of 
Cool me and Burry conteyning together by estimacon two messuagx two 
barnes two gardens one orchard fifty and five acres of pasture - - - Within 
the parish of Langenith - - - ."* 

An agreement was entered into on the 17th day of September, 1G38, be- 
tween Griffin Bowen and Margaret his wife, and William Bennett, by 
which Griffin and Margaret Bowen covenanted to sell to William Bennett 
''two messuages, two barnes, two gardens, one orchard, twenty -four acres 
of land, three acres of meadow, six acres of pasture, four acres of wood and 
six acres of furze and heath with appurtenances in Penrice."t 

Griffith and Margaret Bowen came to New England shortly after the 
date of the foregoing agreement. They may have sailed from Bristol. Eng- 
land, and, probably, brought with them five or six children. 

The first trace we have of them in the New World is, that on " The 
G c of y e same 12 th moneth [1638] Griffyn Bowen & his wife Margarett" 
were "Taken in for members of y e Congregation" of the church in 
Boston. t 

On the 25th of March, 1630, "Mr Gryffen Bowen" had a "great Lott 
granted unto him at Muddy River ;"§ two months after, he "was one of 
the Persons made free."]] 

There is a Bond, recorded among the Deeds of Suffolk County, Mass., 
which is dated loth day of May, 1640. and by which Henry Bowen of 
Haradeu in the County Glamorgan, gentleman, and Henry Morgan of 
Llougher in the * k county aforesaid," gentleman, bound themselves to pay 
Griffith Bowen, "late of Langenith, in the county aforesaid, gentleman, 
fittye pownds vpon the twentieth day of October 1641, and Three score 
& Eighteen pownds more vpon the twentieth day of October 1642.'"^[ 

It is a fortunate thing that this Bond was recorded, for it is the only 
clue we have in America of the place of Griffith Bowen's residence before 
he came to New England. 

At a Town meeting held in Boston "This 20' h day of 11 th Mo. 1643," 
it was voted that iw There is granted unto Gryphen Bowin Gent., an bowse 
lot, if any jet remaine to be disposed of."** 

The only public office Griffith Bowen was elected to while in Boston 
was that of perambulator: "9: 2 mo: 1G49 Mr Bowin & Petter Oliver ia 
chosen for perambulation at Mudye River; "ft and it is the last record we 
have of him before his departure for Wales. He must have sailed for Eng- 
land soon after this, taking with him his wife and some of his children.

1650, ns a " Freeholder " in the " Parcel! Clase: The same for a tenem* in

Griffith Bowen was a witness to a deed, dated 17th December, 1650. by 
which his father-in-law, Henry Fleming, conveyed to Col. Philip Jones 
" two parcels of land in the liberty of Swansea."! 

In "Docket Book, No. 1, 1647 to 1654, Glamorgan," deposited in the 
Public Record Office. London, is this entry: ''Fines leavyed & acknow- 
ledged this Session Betweene Phillip Jones Esq Pit Griffin Bowen ffrancia 
Bowen & William Bowen deforc of ten[ements] in Lanmadoc." The Fines 
for this Session (Spring, 1652), are missing, so the particulars of this 
transfer of property cannot be given. 

Griffith Bowen and Root. Williams farmed the excise of Glamorgan, 
Carmarthen, Pembroke and Cardigan, from the Commissioners of Customs, 
for one year, expiring 25th December, 1653, at £2704 

Afterward (in 1660-1?) Griffith Bowen was imprisoned at "South- 
warke/' at the instance of the " Right Hono ble Charles Lord Gerrard of 
Brandon," because while Collector of Customs, at the " Port of Swansey," 
by his account for the last quarter of the year there appeared to be a 
balance of £388. 4s. due the Commissioners of Customs, which sum he had 
already "returned vp" to London by Bills of Exchanges How long 
he was imprisoned, and what were the conditions of his discharge, have 
not been discovered. 

On the 00th of May, 1654. the "hono ble Collonell Phillipp Jones of 
Swansey in the County of Glamorgan Esquire and one of the Counsel! to 
his Highnes the Lord Protector of England, Scotland and Ireland" entered 
into a covenant with Griffith Bowen of Swansey, gentleman, by which ;t the 
said Collonell Phillipp Jones ffor and in Consideracon of £524 - - to

Griffith Bowen ,k for some very short tyme only enjoyed" his Pembroke 
estate, for in 1656, " not onely the Commonalty of the City of London made 
theire clayme unto the - - - premises but al'soe the University of Oxford 
made there clayme unto the Fee Farme Rent of" £19. 6. 8. and •' It was 
found that these lands of right belonged unto the City of London, and that 
the Fee Farme Rent belonged unto the University of Oxford, and the sale 
made by Phillip Jones became absolutely void." Whereupon Griffith 
Bowen * k made his addresses unto Phillip Jones and. acquainted him with 
the proceedings." Phillip Jones promised " either hee would make good

the estate, or would repay him all the purchase money;" this he afterward 
refused to do, and Griffith Bowen brought, in 1661, a suit in Chancery.* 

The suit went against him, and after being beaten in another " Accon att 
Law against the said Philip Jones" Griffith Bowen twice appealed "To 
the Right Hono ble the Lords Spirituall & Temporal Assembled att the High 
Court of Parliament." In one of these petitions he complains that he is 
"altogether destitute of Reliefe att Law or Equitie or elsewhere than be- 
fore yo r Lordshipps in Parliament Assembled."! The first petition is en- 
dorsed " Griffith Bowen his Peticon Read 10 th January 1670 Rejected;" the 
other is endorsed " 1672-3 Mar 11 Pet. Book." 

While living in " Swansey," 20th of July, 1661, Griffith Bowen executed 
a formal surrender to the King of the property bought of Colonel Philip 
Jones. lie did tliis "in pursuance of an order made by the Lords and 
other His Maiesties Commissioners --- And for other considerations: "| 
one of which may have been due to what follows: 

On the 19th of August, 1661, " The Kings by advice of the Earl of 

Southampton, High Treasurer of England and Lord Ashley, Chancellor 

of the Court of Exchequer," granted and devised unto his " beloved subject 
Griffith Bowen All that water grain mill in Milton," in the County of

On the 7th of April, 1669, "Griffith Bowen sometimes of New England

"For the more cleare and full confirmation of the premises" Griffith 
Bowen "nowe resident in the City of London sometime of Boston in New

parcels of land in Boston. *\

tbe City of London." he deposited in the bands of Francis Bowen, Iris son, 
"several deeds and other writings goods chattels implements of household 
stuff and other personal estate to be safely kept until he should demand the 
same;" that afterward he went to London, and being "wholly unprovided 
of monies" he applied to ''John Bowen of Swansey a kinsman" who was 
then in London " that he would use his interest with one Edward Wool- 
dridge a scrivener," with whom John Bowen had placed "Xeherniah his 
son an apprentice." for procuring a loan of £100 "upon a mortgage of a 
mill known by the name of Milton. Mill lying near the towne of Pem- 
broke;" that John Bowen and Edward Wooldridge, by a combination be- 
tween them, had never paid over to him the £100, although it had been 
promised him, and they had got into their possession the Milton Mill. 

Griffith Bowen further complains that John Bowen pretending he was 
engaged for him (Griffith Bowen) and Francis Bowen to Mr. Wool- 
dridge and others in the sum of £305, prevailed upon him to assign over 
all his "right title and interest of in and to a certain lease of ninety nine 
years of and in all those burgage messuages lauds tenements and heredita- 
ments scituate lying and being in Treckbeck the Hill Good Lake alias wood 
Lake llodgiston alias Hogstoii in the county of Pembroke," and that the 
said Francis Bowen in consideration thereof would forthwith pay "these 
several sums of money following (that is to say) To Edward Wooldredge of 
London Scrivener of £116. To Lady Vaughan of Terrahvycl £159. To 
William Jones of Swanzey £30. To Cornelius Price of the city of Lon- 
don £21. 16 and the farther sum of £20 unto your Orator. And your 
Orator in the year 1606 Did by his Indenture assign and let over the 
premises unto the said Francis Bowen but the said confederates have 
not paid the sums of money above mentioned wherefore your orator 
prays that the said Francis Bowen John Bowen and Edward Wooldridge 
may be commanded to appear before the High and Honorable Court of 
Chancery to make a true and perfect answer to all and singular the 

Francis Bowen "gentleman" in his answer to the Bill of Complaint of 
Griffith Bowen, states that "the Complainant did leave in his hands some 
implements of household stuff, part whereof he afterward delivered to the 
Complainant in London, and what remains he is willing to restore provided 
the Complainant do pay the cellarage rent of the chamber where they re- 
main, not being in his custody." 

He denies that the deeds to the lands named in the Bill were settled upon 
bim in trust, but for good and valuable consideration. 

He confesses that '* he did enter into a Bond of £000 penalty to pay unto 
the Complainant and the several creditors mentioned the several debts, and 
he has since paid a great part of them, and is ready to pay what yet rem tin." 

He states that "the other defendant, John Bowen being bound, with him, 
and security for the several sums of money, he did convey and assign over 
the premises for the security and satisfaction of the said John Bowen, as in 
justice he ought to do. Nevertheless, he is willing, if the Plaintiff will first 
pay and satisfy the said several debts and keep harmless this Defendant 
and the other Defendant, John Bowen, to reconvey the said premises unto

"John Bowen one of the Defendants to the Bill of Complaint of Griffith 
Bowen" in his ~* several Answers" goes into all the details of his money 
transactions with Griffith and Francis Bowen. He states, in part: " where- 
of this Defendant borrowed to lend unto the Plaintiff to set his son Penieli 
Bowen an apprentice in London the sum of £40 of Charles Bowen Enquire 
- - - the same £60 being due unto the said Francklen by bond as aforesaid 

from the plaintiff and his sons Francis and "William whereof the

supply himself being then in London in great want of money to prosecute a 
suit he had against one Co 1 . Phillip Jones - - - the Plaintiff had the 14 th day 
of October Anno 1G62 by his Deed under his hand and seal well executed 
in presence of Moses Longman Christopher Rogers and Peniel Bowen con- 
veyed all his right in and to the premises and Mills unto the Defendant 
Francis.'" This answer of John Bowen is dated " Swansea decimo die 
Octobris Anno 1671."* 

I have not discovered any traces of Griffith Bowen later than " 1C72-3 
Mar 11," which dale is endorsed on his second petition to the House of 
Lords. He may have lived in Loudon up to the time of his death. Some- 
thing further may, be disclosed by examining the records of the town and 
county of Pembroke, or the records of London and Glamorgan. 

Griffith Bow en's New England estaie was not divided among his heirs 
until 1683, nearly eight years after notice of his death had been received 
by the Court at Boston. It may be that this delay was owing to difficulties 
in settling his entangled Welsh estate, or to some other cause not yet 

The Court in Boston granted. April 17. 1676. "Power of Administration 
unto the Estate of M r Griffith Bowen formerly of Boston (who died in 
England) unto Henry Bowen his son in right of those whome it may appear 
to belong." 

On the " G th of NovemV 1CS3" the County Court appointed "L" Sam- 
uel Puggels & M r John Bowies of Roxbury and M r Jacob Eliot of Boston 
a Comittee to make division and sett out the s d Estate," instructing them 
to give " a double part thereof to Francis his eldest son." 

"They accordingly divided it, as they wrote, " In y e Best of our Prudence 
With the consent & to the satisfaction of those concerned viz Mr William 
Bowen, Mr John Weld, widow Child & Henry Bowen." They gave " Mr 
ffraneis Bowen and Mr William Bowen y e North end of the flarme with the 
Houseing & orchards half the salt marsh " and part of the " wood iott."t 

Griffith Bowen, by wife Margaret Fleming, had children: 

i. Margaret, 2 born in Wales. She was. perhaps, the eldest child. She 
married. 2-i December, 1*547, John Weid of Roxbury. He was bora 
in England, 28 October, 1623; died in Roxbury, 20 September, 1601. 
She died 13 September, 1692. 

ii, Francis, born in Wales. All that is known of him is contained in 
the " I. H." pedigree, the Chancery Suits, and in another Chancery 
Suit dated 27 January, 1692, in which "firancis Bowen of the

his contract to furnish him "two thousand and four hundred

So far as it is known. Henry Bowen was the only son of Griffith 
Bowen whose posterity now bears the family name.

The only other records of Peniel Bowen, yet discovered, are in 
John Bowen's ansvrer to Griffith Bowen's suit in Chancery, already 
noticed. Peniel Bowen probably died before his father, for his 
name does not appear in the settlement of his father's estate.

The Subscribers Citizens of the Counties of Hampden, and Hampshire 
in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, 

That they have long been convinced, that in a Government Constituted 
like ours, where the ground of it rest's on publick opinion, that the 
Permannancy and security of it, testes almost altogether on the informa- 
tion the Citizens have (after their early education) as to the Constitution 
and Laws of their Country, — And as many new Laws and Ordinances, 
are passed at each Session of Congress that it would be usefull for the 
Citizens to See: and that altho' Congress have heretofore authorize'! and 
directed certain Printers in different Sections of the United States, (at the 
expence of Government) to publish in their Papers the Acts and doings of 
Congress and the several departments. Yet we believe the People are not 
sufficiently informed as to their doings, — And altho', three Printers within 
this Commonwealth, have heretofore been appointed to publish the Laws, 
namely, one at Portland in the District of Maine, one at Boston and one at 
Worcester, Yet We believe that very few of the People in this Section 
of the Country ever see those Papers. — The Section of Country between 
"Worcester and the line of the State of New York, to the west, is about 
o:\e Hundred Miles by sixty, and has a Population of about one Hundred 
and twenty thousand Souls, and we are confident that very few of those 
authorized Papers circulate in either of the Counties of Hampden, Hamp-

We would further beg leave to State, that there is established at Spring-

AQ2 John Mousall of Wobum. [Oct, 


By W. R. Cutter, Esq., Librarian of the Woburri Public Library. 

John Mousall* was one of the first settlers of Wobtirn, Massachu- 
setts, and to him belongs X\\q credit of building for his own use the first 
house erected in the limits of the present city in 16-il.f lie was one of the 
thirty-two signers of the original town orders of 1640 for the founding of 
Woburn, and his name was the third in the order of signing. Edward John- 
son and Edward Converse (the latter the builder of the first house in the 
original limits of Wohurn) preceding him. He was one of the seven male 
members from the church at Cliar-lestown. who constituted the church of 
Wobum at its gathering, Aug. 14 [24, N. S.] 1642; and afterwards one of 
its two original deacons, till his decease.^ He was one of the selectmen of 
Woburn for 21 years in succession, lie died in Wobum, March 27, It'oo, 
leaving his widow, Joanna, a son, John Mousall, " who was likewise a distin- 
guished citizen in his day," and a daughter. Eunice, wife of John Brooks; 
"but the name of Mousall, as a surname, is now extinct from the place."§ 

The following is an abstract of the will of the first John Mousall, which 
is not only characteristic of the man, but of the times in which he lived. 
It will be noticed that he refers in the will to his " old house," showing 
that another house existed on his estate in 1000, or earlier. The newer 
house was probably the house described in the town records, under date of 
1673, as the "'Hopewell House," owned in common by John Mousall, 2d, 
and John Brooks, being a part of their inheritance from their lather 
Deacon John Mousall, and known by this singular name. 

Will of the Senior John Mousall. [Abstract.] 
The 19th of ye 1th month, 1GG0. That I, John Mousall. senior, of "Woburn, 

husbandman, being in perfect memory, also '■ weake in body" and my 

two sons John Mousall and John Brooks I make joint executors. Gives to 
wife Joanna Mousall all movables; " only three iron pots " I give to my son 
Brooks's three children after her decease, and to my grandchild. Sarah Brooks. 
I give my " booke" of " Mr. Hildersliam upon the 51 psalme"|| ; and I give to 
lay grandchild Unis [Eunice] Brooks, "my booke tituled Mr. Norton's Ortho- 
dox Evangelist"^; and I give to my son John Mousall, my best •' sute of appar- 
rell." To m\ wife Joanna Mousall, I give two of my best cows and two ewe 
sheep, and my executors are to keep these cows and sheep for her, winter and 
summer, so long as she liveth, and all her firewood and four pounds a year to 
be paid by my executors, either in money or corn. I give to my sun John

f The location of mis house, its characteristics, and a portion of its history, is given in

News," Wobum, 1892, pp. 2, 10. 43 ; 1,-IV.

fj The Mr. Hildersham whose work on the 51st Psalm is mentioned in the above will, 
was Arthur Hildersham, an English author. His exposition of this psalm was entitled: 
"CLII Lectures upon Psalm !i.," W-tf, fob, and was a work highly valued by the Puritan 
element both in the old country and the new. Copies of the book are still found in the 
older libraries, 

H John Norton, author of the "Orthodox Evangeh'st," Lond. 1654, 4to. was a native of 
England, but • tried in New England, where he was the minister of Ipswich and Boston,

1893.] John Mousall of Woburn. 463 

Brooks, one cow and one sheen toward tlie furnishing of the new room joining 
to his house, and my wife is to have a peaceable living in it, providing she stay 
in it. I give to Ephraim Bucke and Hannah Lepinwell, either of them, a ewe 
lamb, at or before the end of their time, provided they carry it respectfully to 
my wife, at the judgment of the overseers of my will ; and I give to my Reverend 
Pastor, Mr. Thomas Carter, one ewe sheep, and I give my great meadow 
to my two sons equally"; but in case he die without children, then he can -jive 
it to his wife for her life; and after my son John Mousali's decease, and his 
wife leaving no heir, it shall return to my son John Brooks's children. I give 
to my wife t!u.> third part of the fruit of the orchard for her life, and the little 
hemp-yard and garden the back side of the old house. To my grandchild, Joanna 
Brooks, my little bible. The rest of my lands I give to my two sous equally, 
as they have agreed, and have in possession. I also make my brother James 
Thompson and Allen Converse, overseers of my will. Probated April 4, 1GG5. 

The inventory of the "estate of John Mousall, senior, Deacon of the 
Church of Christ at Woburne, deceased," contains this item: To housing 
and lands £200. 

The allusion in the above will to the "furnishing of the new room'' 
joining to the son John Brooks's house, and the widow's having a peaceable 
Jiving in it, "provided she stay in it," is an interesting statement, showing 
that more than one house existed on the premises when the will was made 5 
and John Mousall, 2d, did die without children and so some of the property 
returned to John Brooks's children, as stated in the will. When Joanna, 
the widow of the first John Mousall, died, is not known. 

The house of John Brooks is alluded to in an agreement between John 
Brooks and John Mousall, Jr., in 1G60, wherein there is a mutual release of 
lands; Brooks resigning his interest to Mousall in certain land that he and 
Mousall had purchased of their father, Henry Brooks, — Brooks having 
purchased this piece for them of Daniel Bacon: Mousall resigning his 
part of the "old sheep pasture" joining to Brooks's orchard, and his part 
of the "upper meadow"; he to enjoy all the land from his housing "that 
he now possesseth "; the bounds being settled. Brooks to possess ail from 
"his housing" downward, by the same bounds, till he reaches the great 
meadow; he also to enjoy all the land in his possession lying in the lower 
field. What land remained undivided was to be equally divided between 
them: and for the land that lyeth between the two, they agreed that it 
" shall be common to the bridge, for the use of both houses, forever and a 
day." It was also provided that Brooks was to have a woodvard by a line 
from the corner of " his house," to the - k stone wall by bis little garden"; 
also a driftway, or common-way, over which cattle were driven, through 
the undivided land on the east of Mousali's field into the lower ti^id 
belonging to Brooks: "and the line shall stand forever between us, — both 
in the yards as it now stands, from the street gates to the lower gate-: at 
the Lead of the lane." Acknowledged April 4, 1605. Recorded same 
date. Middlesex Registry of Deeds, B. 3, p. 135. See The Keivs, 
Woburn, Sept. 5, 1391, for a fuller abstract. John Mousall, 2d, married 
the daughter of Henry Brooks, and hence a double relation between the 
two brothers was formed. 

In the last clause of the above agreement, is an undoubted refereuce to 
the historic way in Woburn, known as " Mousali's Lane." which passed 
between the two houses of the old Mousall estate, beginning at the "street 
gates" on present Montvale Avenue, and continuing to the k - lower gates " 
near wh^re the burn of the late 8. W, Russell estate formerly stood, or 
where the building of tie; Woburn Electric Light Company now stands, 
or near it. These " lower gates " marked the entrance to the " head of 

464 John Mousall of Woburn. [Oct. 

the lane," and were in existence till a, comparatively late period. The 
opening of the present Prospect Street its entire length, about 1363, 
changed the entire appearance of the locality, and there is nothing now 
to show its former appearance, or condition. This new street practically 
covers the route from the i4 street gates " to the " lower gates,'' and con- 
tinues its course onward in the lane mentioned in 1660, all traces of which 
are now obliterated. 

The word " housing," in the above statement is undoubtedly designed to 
cover all the buildings of a separate establishment, and we have above 
an equitable agreement between two brothers, — doubly brothers-in-law, 
— holding the estate of their father in common — the estate known as the 
original Mousall estate — consisting, in 1673, for one moiety, of the dwell- 
ing-house, with barns, stables and outhouses, with GO acres of land belong- 
ing, known as the ''Hopewell House"; situated at a place called Hilly 
Way, being part of an inheritance from Deacon John Mousall [John 
Mousail's part] — bounded north on the highway. The other moiety 
[John Brooks's], with a larger number of acres [30] was also a part of 
his inheritance t'vom his father-in-law, Deacon John Mousall, and was 
" formerly known " by the name of the Hopewell House. 

John Mousall, Jr., having married a sister of the John Brooks whom we 
have so often mentioned, and Brooks having married the only sister of 
John Mousall, Jr., the above John Mousall would be a son-in-law of the 
H- hry Brooks, already mentioned, who bought a piece of laud of Daniel 
IJacon, in which John Brooks transferred his interest to the younger 
Mousall, in consideration of another interest in the Mousall estate, as we 
have already shown. 

To trace the estate from this point for a number of years is not difficult, 
the following beins; its record in brief: 

1679. The selectmen agreed with John Brooks to hire his dwelling- 
house for the use of Rev. Jabez Fox, the incoming minister, with provision 
for the pasturing of the minister's horse and a convenient garden plot. 
The house was to be put in repair, and all was to be for the "use of the 
Rev. Mr. Fox" for the " whole year 1679," and for which the town was to 
pay. Later in the same year the town began the erection of another house 
for their minister, Mr. Fox, and the Brooks house was abandoned. Refer- 
ence may here be supposed to be made to the original house of John 
Mousall, senior, which would seem to be old, and out of repair, in 
1679, — not far from forty years after its erection in 1641. 

1694. The second John Mousall grants to his " loving cousin " Joseph 
Wright, Jr., and to Elizabeth, his wife, his homestead, with some wood- 
lands and other estate. He says, referring to Elizabeth Wright, " having 
experience of her respects and care of me and my wife for many years 
together, and now also in our age the said Joseph Wright and Elizabeth 
his wife, have engaged themselves to take care of me and my wife, during 
our natural lives," I do, " in consideration of love and good will," convey 
the homestead and other property. 

The homestead of about 40 acres was situated near Woburn Meeting- 
House, and the bounds were in brief, John Brooks east, Ephraim Buck, 
John Brooks and Jabez Brooks south-east, the King's highway south-west, 
and Jonathan Thompson and John Burbeen partly on the north-w**st, and. 
at the north-east end, next the meeting-house, it abutted on cue town 

1803.] John Mousall of )Vobur?i. 465 

The deed also continued with this statement: i% I also give said Joseph, 
my dwelling-house, ham, cider-mill and press, these all belonging to my 
homestead: he to have all after the decease of me and Sarah, my now 
married wife." 

The above document dated Feb. 10, 1694. was recorded Midd. Reg., 
b. 12, p. 90, and the original is now in the collection in the Woburn Public 

The above John Mousall left no children, and with his wife's decease the 
name became extinct in Woburn. His property then passed into the name 
of Wright, in which name it remained a number of years. 

The following genealogical particulars may be of interest. 

Eunice .Mousall and John Brooks were married at Woburn, Nov. 1, 

John Mousall and Sarah Brooks were married at Woburn, May 13, 
1650. This was John Mousall, the second, who died April 2, 169S, four 
years after the date of the preceding deed. 

Deacon John Mousall, the father, died March 27,. 1665. He was aged 
about 63 in 1658. 

The date of death of Sarah Mousall, wife of the second John Mousall, 
does not appear. It was probably before 1706. 

The following transfers relate to the Mousall estate or lot: 

17' G. Joseph Wright, Jr., to Jacob Wright. Conveyance of home- 
stead house and barn and outhousing, near the meeting-house. 

]7o7. Jacob Wright. Be-conveyance of the same to Joseph Wright. 

1702. Joseph Wright died. 

1737. Homestead mentioned as bounded north-east by town-way lead- 
ing from Woburn Meeting-House to Richardson's Row. Evidently this 
highway was the present Montvale Avenue. West end of dwelling, with 
privilege of 12 perch of land, also garden in front of house, 60 perch of 
land, and other lands set off to Joseph Wright's widow Rachel, 1737. 

1751. Dower of Rachel divided among the heirs of Joseph Wright, 
and Mousall Wright, her son, acquired the dwelling-house, with barn and 
land adjoining, also 60 rods of land exiled the garden. 

There was considerable complication and trouble in the settlement of 
Joseph Wright's estate, which is evident from the papers to be found at 
the office of probate. The reasons cannot be entered upon here.* There 
are two original deeds relating to the interest of Mousall Wright preserved 
in the archives of the Woburn Public Library, under the following dates: 

1733. Mousall Wright to Jacob Wright, of all his interest in the estate 
of Ids ; ' honored father " Joseph. Wright. 

1736. Heirs of Joseph Wright quit-claim to Mousall Wright, all their 
interest in several pieces and parcels of land in the township of Woburn, 
one being "the east end of the dwelling-house and west end oi the 
barn, corn-house, etc., with the remaining part of land, about 3 acres, 
whereon the buildings stand"; N., town road; E., Timothy Brooks; S., the 
widow's l'-\ acres meadow, etc., with liberty of passage between said 
Mousall's land and that of said Timothy Brooks from the town road. 
Mousall Wright was dead before Nov. 3, 1770, see below. 

The following deeds have a bearing on this estate: 

1773. Timothy Brooks, gent., Samuel Belknap, yeoman, and William 
Fox, chaise maker, partition between, made Aug. 3, 1773, witnesseth: 

* See Wright Genealogy, by W. R. Gutter, Register, vol. xxxvii, p. 78, 
vol. XLVir. 40* 

466 John Mousall of Woburn, [Oct. 

Whereas said Timothy Brooks some time since gave his son Timothy 
Brooks, Jr.. gent., a deed of sale of one half of his messuage in Woburn, 
as the same is therein bounded, the same being then undivided, and the 
said Timothy, the son, hath since conveyed his half aforesaid still undivided 
unto the said Samuel and William, now the said Timothy, the original 
grantor, grants to and covenants with the said Samuel and William, and 
their heirs, that the lines dividing the messuage shall be as follows, etc. 

The above Timothy Brooks, Jr., removed from Woburn to Salem about 

1770. Zebadiah Wyman of Eleazer Carter, 1770, — one piece of part 
upland and part meadow, containing one acre, being part of the house lot, 
which was formerly Simon Thompson's near Woburn Meeting-House, — E'., 
Thomas Belknap and Wid. Susanna Wright; S., by land formerly belong- 
ing to Isaac Brooks; W. and N., by thirds of Wid. Betty Flagg. Susanna 
Wright was widow of Mousall Wright; see above. 

Zebadiah Wyman, trader and retailer, acquired an interest by deeds from 
the following persons on account of his having married the widow of 
Nathan Brooks, son of Nathan Brooks, whose estate he desired to possess 
himself of. There is considerable information, of genealogical .interest in 
the names of the residences oi the various individuals. 

1774. John Brooks, housewright, and William Brooks, blacksmith, of 
Hollis; Setli Brooks, of Acton, housejoiner; and Zachariah Brooks, of 
Woburn, tailor, release to Z. W., right in estate of Nathan Brooks, late 
of Woburn, blacksmith. 

1775. Giles Johnson, " now resident at a place to the Eastward, known 
by the n; me of Major Bagadoose,"* with Elizabeth, his wife, release to 
Z. W., <'.-il title 4i we now have unto the estate of which our brother 
Nathan Brooks, retailer, deceased, died siezed of, or which ought to have 
descended to us as heirs, or by virtue of last will of said Brooks." 

1782. Jonathan Brooks, of New London, Conn., cabinetmaker, releases 
interest in estate of his brother, Nathan Brooks, deceased, to Z. W. 

These papers are supplemented by many other Brooks family papers 
now in the possession of the authorities of the Woburn Public Library.! 

The title from Mousall Wright has not yet been thoroughly traced. His 
widow seems to have owned the estate after 1770. 

The title from Timothy Brooks, a descendant of the first John Mousall, 
has been already mentioned in " Old Houses and Homes" [Woburn, 1892] 
as passing from John Brooks [died 1733], son of John and Eunice 
[Mousall] Brooks, to him, a son of the last named John Brooks. Timothy 
Brooks and Nathan Brooks, already mentioned, were brothers. Timothy 
died in 1786, and his mansion house is mentioned as on the road leading 
from Zebadiah Wyman's brick store to it, in 1704. It was standing till 
about 1S3J. It came into Zebadiah Wyman's possession, in part, before 
1794, and was occupied by two families for a long period. Iu 1798, one 
half was owned by Elisha Tottinghara, with Hiram Flagg as occupant. 
The Flagg family occupied it in following years in the recollection of many 
persons now living. The other half was owned by Mary Wyman, a minor, 
1798, a daughter of Zebadiah Wyman, who had then lately deceased. 
She died in 1804. Her mother, Eunice Wyman, was her guardian, in 
1798, and the occupant was Jonathan Tyler at that date. The house was

the facts there presented many cuuld now be added.

then described as an "old house." Previously, in 1794, it was called in a 
division of Zebadiah Wyman's property* the " Brooks Place," being half a 
house, half a barn, and half a corn-house, with the garden, yard-, arid 
lanes, and 63 acres of land in two divisions. The home lot contained 
37 acres, and this place with a part of the above land was set off to Mary 
Wyman. Zebadiah Wyman purchased the " Brooks Place," of Timothy 
Brooks, 2d. by deed, dated March 9, 1791, Zebadiah Wyman, Esq., and 
Deacon, died April 14, 1793. aged 52. 

The heirs of Zebadiah Wyman also owned, in 1794, the " Mousall 
Place," another estate than the above, set off to his widow Eunice as a 
part of her thirds. This included 5.1 acres of land, bounded "northward 
on the road leading by the schoolhouse to the Brooks place." This was a 
part of the original Mousall estate, but not the lot on which the Mousall 
house stood. This was nearer the present street in front of it. Nathan 
Brooks, son of John, grandson of John and Eunice [Mousall] Brooks, was 
father of Zachariah Brooks [died 1792], whose widow Susanna Brooks, 
owned the orignal house in 1798. having Samuel Watts for occupant. 
The house was then old and poor, with J acre of land on which it stood. 
Mrs. Brooks soon married David Dexter, 1799, and living long as his 
widow in the house, it became known as the Dexter house. The house 
was burned in 1803 or 1835, having become uninhabitable; and this was 
the end of the first house erected within the present limits of the city of 
Woburn, on the estate now known as 23 Montvale Avenue. 

In 1834 certain members of the Wyman family mentioned conveyed a 
piece of this property to James Tweed, George W. Reed, and Sylvanus 
Wood, Jr., bounded north on present Montvale Avenue; east by a lane 
or passage way; west partly by the burying-yard, etc. In 1835 Wood 
scd his interest to Peed and Tweed, who built a house on it and lived 
together in it for many years. 

In 1854 a conveyance from George W. Reed and James Tweed to 
Rufus AVyman, of 5 acres, 22 poles, was bounded north on Railroad Street

by "ourselves" and the heirs of Rufus Wyman and Euuice Stone and 
others, called the " Dexter place," to said Railroad Street. Thus an old 
name has held on, but the name of Mousall, though early extinct in 
Woburn as a family, has held on as a living entity in the community to the 
present time in the names of Mousall lane, Mousall place, and Mousall 
pasture, and the good name, fame, and influence of the original Mousall. 
who built the first house in this thriving community, has held on in 
descendants of the female line till a goodly company of estimable and 
useful people, generation after generation, has peopled the land, ibe 
influence of his three books, his " llildersham," his " Orthodox Evangelist/' 
his "little Bible," has not been lost. Many names extinct by family 
representation for nearly two centuries have perished, but his name is still 
remembered and cherished in the New England community in which he 
made his home.*

For several years queries have appeared in the Boston newspapers about 
Christian Remick, an artist, sea captain and officer in the Revolution, in 
the Massachusetts State and Continental navies, etc., and it is the purpose 
of this article to give a short account of him and his ancestors. This 
Christian 4 Remick was the son of Christian 3 Remick of P^astham. Mass., 
who was a son of Abraham 2 Remick of Kittery, Me., and Eastham; and 
Abraham 2 was the son of Christian 1 Remich of Kittery, the emigrant to 
this country. 

1. Christian 1 Remich, the emigrant, was born in 1631, probably in 
Holland or England, as the name is of German extraction, and there 
are many of the name now living in Holland and Germany. There. 
is a town named Remich in the Duchy of Luxemburg, which was 
so named in the time of the Roman occupation; and probably the 
Remicks came from this town. Christian 1 came to America when 
young, as he was living in the town of Kittery, Maine, in IG.51, and 
continued there until his death, about 1710. He was one of the 
Proprietors of the town, and was granted a great deal of land in 
what are now the towns of Kittery, Eliot and South Berwick, 
amounting to about-500 acres ; the most of which still remain in 
possession of his descendants and name. 


474 Hemiclc Genealogy. [Oct. 

He was a smart and bright man for the times ; was the town's 
surveyor for many years, treasurer, selectman (of which board he- 
was chairman most of the time), and representative to the legislature. 
There are many of his letters and papers still preserved in posses- 
sion of courts, towns and individuals. Mr. Walter Lloyd Jewries, 
126 Beacon St., Boston, has a letter which was written by Christian 1 
as chairman of the board of selectmen of the town of Kittery, to 
John Usher. It is dated June 29, 168S, and is about the taxes 
for that year of the town. His occupation was that of planter and 

surveyor. He married about 1G54, Hannah , by whom he 

had 9 children, all born in Kittery, as follows: 

i. Hannah, 2 b. April 25, 1656. 

ii. Mary, 2 b. August 7, 1658. 

iii. Jacob. 2 b. Nov. 23, 1660; d. June , 1745, in Kittery. 

iv. Sarah, 2 b. July 16, 1663; d. in 1722, in Berwick, 

v. Isaac, 2 b. July 20, 1665 ; moved to South Carolina. 

2. vi. Abraham, 2 b. June 9, 1667. 

vii. Martha, 2 b. Feb. 20, 1669. 

viii. Joshua, 2 b. July 24, 1672 ; d. in 1733, in Kittery. 

ix. Lydia, 2 b. Feb.' 8, 1676. 

These four sons of Christian 1 Remich were all fairly well educated 
for the times, as appears by their letters and signatures ; and their 
descendants have filled many positions of usefulness in the town, state 
and nation. One of the most distinguished was the late Chief Justice 
Morrison Remich Waite, but others will also be now mentioned. 
A granddaughter of Joshua 2 married Gen. Sullivan of the Revolu- 
tion. David 4 Remick, a grandson of Jacob, 3 was a captain in the 
Massachusetts line at the capture of Ticonderoga and Crown Point 
in 1759, and was the great-grandfather of Gen. David 7 Remick, who 
served in the Union army, 1861-5. Major Timothy 4 Remick, who 
served all through the Revolutionary war in Massachusetts regi- 
ments, and was on Washington's staff, was a grandson of Joshua 2 
above. Captain Benjamin 5 Remick, who served in the Massachu- 
setts and Continental navy in the Revolution, was a great-grandson 
of Jacob 3 above. Benjamin 5 Remick was also a celebrated naval 
constructor and shipbuilder in New Hampshire and Maine. Among 
the more celebrated of his vessels was the sloop of war " Banger" 
built at Kittery, Maine. She was the lirst man of war commanded 
by Capt. John Paul Jones, and sailed from Kittery, Dec. 2, 1777, 
and was the first American-built war ship to show the national flag 
in Europe, where it was saluted by the French Admiral, Feb. lo, 
• 1778, in the Bay of Quiberon, being the first salute in Europe to 
our national flag by a foreign power. Capt. Benjamin 5 was the 
master builder of over 50 vessels in his time. 

2. Abraham 5 Remick (Christian 1 ), son of Christian, 1 married in 1692 
or 3, Elizabeth Freeman, in Eastham, Mass. She was born June 
26, 1671, daughter of Samuel and Mercy (Southworth) Freeman. 
Abraham* settled in Eastham; was a planter, farmer and mariuer, 
and died about 1705, probably in P2astham ; his widow married 
Joseph My rick in 1712, by whom she had one daughter.

li TT ed in Eastham, and probably followed the sea most of his life, 
dying ui Eastham in 1783. He married 1st, Hannah Freeman, in 
Eastham, Oct. 10, 1717. She was the daughter of Lieut. Edmend 
and Sarah (Mayo) Freeman of Eastham, and died in Eastham, July 

7, 1751, in her 54th year. Children of Christian 3 and Hannah, all 
born in Eastham :

Christian 3 Remick married 2d, Sarah Freeman of Harwich, Mass., 
August 27, 1752. She was born in 1720, the daughter of Beujamin 
Freeman. No children probably by wife Sarah. 

Abraham 3 Remick (Abraham, 2 Christian 1 ), born May 20, 1G9G, a 
soldier in New Hampshire in the Indian war of 1712. was a sailor 
and master mariner, and one of the founders and original members 
of the Boston Marine Society, joining Feb. 17, 1743. He sailed out 
of Boston as master for many years, and lived in Boston and on 
Cape Cod, dying about 1755. 

He seems to have married 1st, Abigail Wedget in Durham, N. PL, 
April 11, 1728 (this is doubtful). He married 2d, Ursula Parker 
of Boston, Jan. 14, 1738-9, in King's Chapel. They probably had 
no children. 

Christian 4 Remick (Christian? Abraham 2 Christian 1 ), born April 

8, 172G, is the artist concerning whom inquiry has been made. He 
seems to have been a sailor, and master mariner also; and probably 
learned the art of navigating from his uncle, Abraham 3 Remick, be- 
fore mentioned. He married Sarah, daughter of Nathaniel Myrick, 
and they probably lived in Boston most of their lives, although they 
also lived in Eastham and Harwich, Mass. 

He seems to have been eno-wed in painting and drawing in water 
colors, also making geographical plans of harbors, sea coasts, etc. 
His advertisement in the "Boston Gazette and County Post Boy 
and Journal," of Oct. IG, 17G9, and subsequent issues, is as follows: 

"Christian Remick, lately from Spain, Begs Leave to inform the 
Public, That he performs ail sorts of Drawing and Water Colours, 
such as Sea Pieces, Prospective Views, Geographical Plans of Har- 
bours, Sea Coasts <ic. Also Colours Pictures to the Life and Draws 
Coats of Arms at the most reasonable Rates. Specimens of his 
Performances, particularly an accurate View of the Blockade of 
Boston, with the landing the British Troops on the iirst of October, 

476 Memick Genealogy. [Oct. 

1768, may be seen at the Golden Ball and Bunch of Grapes Taverns, 
or at Mr. Thomas Bradford's, North End, Boston.'' 

Christian Remick painted several copies of this view of the landing 
of British troops in Boston in 1768. The New-England Historic 
Genealogical Society and the Essex Institute each owns a copy, and 
one belongs to W. H. Whitmore of Boston, being that formerly 
owned by Miss Otis. These are respectively dedicated to Gibbons 
Sharp, Jonathan Peal and John Hancock. These pictures are each 
54 inches by 9. A reduced engraving therefrom is in Stark's 
"Antique Views of Boston." 

A picture of Boston from the water, showing this landing of 
troops, was engraved by Paul Revere. A copy of it colored by 
Christian Remick, hangs in the Old State House in Boston; ii be- 
longs to ex-Mayor Green * Remick probably did not make much 
money at this business; and so we find him in September, 1777, 
sent on shore with other prisoners at Townsend and Sheepscot River, 
Maine, from II. M. S. kl Rainbow." He had undoubtedly been 
captured from some privateer or Massachusetts State vessel. 

He was Pilot and Lieutenant of the brigantine ''Tyrannicide" of 
the Massachusetts State Navy in 1778; and was Prize Master and 
Lieutenant with Captain John Manley on the Continental frigate 
" La Hague." Pie served throughout the war, and was alive in 
July, 1783, when he was probably living in Eastham. Mass. I have 
been unable to learn anything about him since 1783, and have also 
been unable to obtain an account of his children ; but the following 
is thought to be nearly correct. 

Children of Christian 4 and Sarah : 

i. Hannah, 5 m. Joshua Ernmes of Boston, -there, Nov. 20, 1773. 

ii. Freeman, 5 b. 1755; d. Nov. 30, 1826, in West Brewster; in. Abigail 

Sears, May 15, 1777, in Harwich, Mass. 
iii. Elkanaii, 5 b. 1753 ; d. Jan. 22, 1830, in Eden, Me. ; m. Phebe Doane 

of Cape Cod. 
iv. Sally, 5 m. Patrick Christopher of Boston, June, 1771. 
v. Daniel, 5 bapt. March 9, 1766, in Boston. Probably never married. 

Freeman 5 and Elkanah 8 were both soldiers in Massachusetts regi- 
ments during the Revolution, and were in many hard fought battles. 
Freeman lived on Cape Cod, and P^lkanah on Mt. Desert Island, 
Me., in the vicinity of which are many of his descendants. 

6. Daniel 4 Remick (Christian, 3 Abraham? Christian 1 ), brother to 
.Christian 4 before mentioned, was a soldier in the 8th Massachusetts 
regiment in 17-15, in the expedition to capture Louisburg, C. B. 

He was a mariner and lived in Boston ; married Prisciila Johnson 
of Boston, there in May, 1758. He was probably burned in the 
large fire in Boston in 1760. His widow, Prisciila Remick, married 
Nathaniel Gray in Boston, Dec. 17, 1761. Probably no children. 

* For f. notice of Rcwere's engraving, see Memorial History of Boston, ii., 532. This 
first plate of 1768 has in the corner an inscription, "To the Earl of Hiilsborousrh, his 
Mnje.sry's Secretary of State for America, this view of the only weli-plan d expedition i irmed 
for supporting the dignity of Britain, and chastising y e insolence of America, is humbly in- 
scribed." These high Tory sentiments are ofF-set by another inscription under the view, 

in four long lines, which says the troops " marched with insolent parade up State 

St.," &c, &c. Considering the contradiction between these sentiments, i: may be a ques- 
tion whether the impressions issued in 1768 bore the second inscription. 1'hc plate remains 
in the charge of the Secretary of Massachusetts, having been used for the issue of the Con- 
tinental currency.— w. h.w.

7. Isaac 4 Remick {Christian? Abraham, 2 Christian 1 ), another brother, 

moved to and settled in Rye, N. H., was a mariner and farmer; 
married and raised a large family in Rye; several of his sous were 
in the Continental army from 1775 to 1883.

1744, youngest child of Christian 3 and Hannah, was a mariner and 
farmer; lived in Eastham, Mass., and was probably drowned at sea. 
He married. Sarah Lincoln Paine, and they had three children, all

This completes the sketch of Christian 3 Remick and his relatives. 
There may be some mistakes in regard to relationship and dates, 
and if any are noted the writer wishes to be informed, as he is en- 
gaged in writing a history and genealogy of the Remick family in the 
United States, and would be very glad to receive any thing of 
interest regarding Christian 1 Remich, the emigrant, or of any of his 
descendants. It will be observed that the writer spells some of the 
names Remich and others Remick; the rule has been to spell it as 
the persons mentioned did, although the emigrant always spelled his 
name with a final h, instead of k; but nearly all of his descendants 
spell it with the final k.

[From the Massachusetts Gazette, Boston, July 26, 1773.] 

On the 14 Instant died, and on Monday last was buried, the Hon 
THOMAS HUBBARD, Esq/: in the 71st Year of his Age. 

Perhaps no Person has passed through Life with more Reputation to 
himself, or more Usefulness to the Public, than M r Hubbard: His exemp- 
lary Conduct, both in public and private Life, merits universal Approba- 
tion: He was not insensible that every particular private Connection 
brought with it its particular Obligations: This led him to shew himself 
the kind and faithful Husband, in the conjugal Relation; As a Parent, he 
was tender and indulgent: To his Domestics, he was generous and con- 
descending: To his Neighbors obliging: The native Integrity of his 
Heart made him strictly just and upright in his Dealings: If Sincerity, 
Candor, and an uncommon Openness of Heart, joined with a real Desire 
to please and oblige, are some of the most solid Principles in true Friend- 
ship, he justly deserved the Character of one of the best of Friends. 

Merit, like his could not long lie unnoticed: Upon his first Appearance 
on the Stage of Life, he was introduced to some very important civil Posts 
in his native Town: These were discharged with such uncommon Fidelity 
and Exactness by him, as to open the Way for the Honors of his Country 
to be poured on him with a liberal Hand: For many Years succesivly, 
he held the Chair in the Honorable House of Representatives for this 
Province: This he filled with so much Reputation to himself as to open 
the Way for a Seat at his Majestys Council Board where he continued to 
to the Year of his Death : These public Places he considered as chiefly 
valuable, because he might become more extensively useful: He felt the 
Obligations of a public Character: and many can witness with what 
Assiduity and Diligence, with what unshaken Firmness and Integrity, he 
acted in these several Departments. 

Posessed with a benevolent Heart, he was a Friend to Human Happi- 
ness, and therefore was a Friend to Learning and Science, which so 
greatly conduce to promote it. He was attentive to the interest of Learn- 
ing in general, but the College in this Vicenity became the Object of his 
peculiar Affection and Regard: Ho considered its Interests as his own: 

1893.] Obituary of Hon. Thomas Hubbard. 481 

For many Years past he sustained the Office of Treasurer for that respect- 
able Society, ami was a Member of the Honorable Corporation: In these 
Places he ever acted with the Care and Assiduity of a Parent: By this 
means, the public Funds happily increased under his careful Hand: Not 
content with acting the Part of a College Treasurer, he destinguished him- 
self as one of its liberal Benefactors: He made it the Object of his 
Bounty in Time of Life, and bequeathed it a handsome Legacy at his 

But if there was any one Virtue more conspicuous in this good Man, 
than another, it seems to have been the Charity and Liberality of his 
Heart: a more soft and tender, a more sympathizing or more liberal Dis- 
position, no Man, perhaps, ever experienced: He employed his Riches, as 
he did his Time and Talents for the Good of Mankind: Blessed with an 
opulent Fortune, and a liberal Heart, he became, in a sense, a public 
Almoner: He was in the most proper sense, "Eyes to the Blind, and 
Feet to the Lame": His House was a Temple of Hospitality: Oft did 
fill the Hands of the Indigent, oft wipe away the Tears of Poverty and 
Distress — and how often has he caused the ik Widows Heart to sing 
for Joy." 

We should by no means do Justice to his Character, unless we attend to 
to the most valuable Part of it; If our Lord has fixed the true Criterion 
of his Friends and Followers in saying " by their Fruits ye shall know 
them" he justly deserved the Character of an exemplary Christian: His 
Mind was deeply impressd with a sense of Religion in early Life; He 
ever discovered a firm Belief of the excellent Doctrines and Precepts of 
Christianity: was a constant and devout Attendant on public Worship; 
was a strict Observer of the Sabbath; ever kept up religious Exercises in 
his Family and Closet; and did not fail to instruct his Children and 
Servants in the important Truths of the Gospel — So that he was a most 
valuable Man of Church as well as State. 

His Constitution of Body was originally good; but a universal Languish- 
men t and Decay of Nature, seemed of late to have seized him: The 
Obstinacy of his Disorder baffled the Efforts of the medical Art; He was 
sensible of his Danger; but the Pri.ncinles of that Religion which directed 
him in Life, gave him the most substantial Support in the Hour of Death: 
He. calmly acquiesced in the Will of Heaven; and we have reason to 
think is in full Possesion of Heavenly Bliss and Glory: The Death of 
so valuable Person, must sensibly affect, not only his Family and Friends, 
but also the Church and Town to which he belonged, as well as the Public 
in general. 

His Remains were interred with every possible Mark of Esteem and 
Respect, having a very respectable Train of Followers, and a numerous 
Croud of Spectators. 

M r Hubbard sustained the office of Treasurer of Harvard University for 
many years, with great honor to himself and benefit to that institution. 

He was also Deacon, and Treasurer of the Old South Church in this 
City; holding both offices for a long period with great judgement and 

To his beneficence and care The Poor Fund of that Church and Society 
was greatly indebted for its usefulness, and since his death the accuracy of 
his accounts, eminently contributed in the late trial before the Supreme 
Court of Chancery, towards the re-establishment of that moot excellent 
Charity, and a restoration of a part of its funds.

Hon. Thomas Hubbard "lived in a tine man-ion in Summer street, which had 
been built by Leonard Vassall on land formerly owned by Simeon Stoddard. 
He left £200~to the poor of Boston and .£50 to the Charitable and Pious Fund 
of the Old South. His executors were : William Blair Townsend, his sen-in- 
law, and Thomas Fayerweather. His daughter Mary, wife of .Mr. Townseud, 
died in 17CS soon after marriage. His daughter. Thankful, married in 17 TO Dr. 
Thomas Leonard, and died in 1772. Phillis Wheatley addressed ?ome touching

State Treasurers of Connecticut. — I have been at work for the past four 
years procuring photos of the ex-Treasurer? of Connecticut to be hung in the 
Treasurer's office in Hartford, and have succeeded in procuring them as far back 
as 1769 with only one missing, that of Peter Colt, who served 1790-179-1, four 
years. This will make over thirty already obtained up to date. 

Now, at the request of Mr. Gay, secretary of our Historical Society in Hart- 
ford, who advised me to write you and through your magazine ask of your many 
readers if they can give any information where a painting, steel plate or any 
picture of the following persons could be found, and request them to write me 
at Vernon, Conn., in regard to them, which will carry us back to the formation 
of our State government.

Scott and White. — In Vol. II., p. 175, of the X. Y. Gen. & Biog. Record, 
Mr. M. B. Scott, in an article on the Scott Family, speaking of John 2 son of 

Richard'- Scott, states he married " Rebeckah , her maiden name is not 

positively known, but there is a strong circumstantial evidence that she was the 
daughter of Sylvanus White, son of Peregrine White who was born on board 
the Mayflower." 

He places the birth of John 2 Scott 1640, his marriage 1661, and death 1677. 
Peregrine 1 White was born 1620, married 1648, and consequently Sylvanus 2 
would not have been born before 1618, and in that case would have been but 
thirteen at the time of his daughter's alleged marriage. We think the natural 
evidence would outweigh the circumstantial in this case.

"Which Richard Jacques Killed Father Kale at Norridgewock in 1724? 
T~Lieut. Richard Jacques was a native of Newbury, Mass. There were two of 
this name, cousins, of nearly the same age. One became a minister of the. 
Gospel, and settled at Gloucester. A recent writer has suggested that this man 
was the slaver of Bale. Who can tell? 3.

have come from Yorkshire) prior to their settlement in this country?

Perkins or Hampton, N. H. — In the Register for 1858 (xii., 82), there is an 
account of the family of Isaac and Susanna Perkins of Hampton, who were the 
parents of the following children : Lydia, m. 17 Oct. 1650, to Eliakim Wardhall; 
Isaac, drowned 1661; Jacob, m. 30 Dec. 1669, Mary Phillbrook: Rebecca, m. 21 
Sept. 1659, John Huzzey; Daniel, d. 1662; Caleb, m. 24 April 1077, Bethiah 
Phillbrook; Benjamin, d. 1670; Susan, m. Isaac Buzwell and William Fuller; 
Hannah, in. 1 Dec. J o 7 4 , James Phillbrook; Mary, m. Isaac Chase; Ebenezer, 
m. Mary; Joseph, m. Martha. Some uncertainty appeared as to Lydia, Rebecca 
and Caleb being children of the above Isaac. 

Jacob's children were, Isaac, b. 1071 : Jacob, b. 1674; ?Aiice, m. John Marden, 
1699; Mary. b. 1678; Benjamin, b. 1603. 

Ebenezer's children were, Daniel, b. 1685; Abigail, b. 1687: Jonathan, b. 1691. 

Joseph and Martha had Joseph, b. 1689; John, b. 1691; Caleb, b. 1603. The 
later history of these three brothers appears to have been unknown. 

The following facts may serve to throw some light on the family history : 

Eliakim and Lydia Warded, after sharing in the persecutions experienced by 
many of the Quakers, removed to Monmouth Co., X. J., prior to 16,70. John 
Hussey, : 'iatc of Hamp Town in New Hampshire, near piscatoway in New 
England," by deed of 1 July 1695, purchased 340 acres of land near New Castle, 
Del., and here he died in 1707. His mother-in-law probably accompanied him 
to the Delaware, as we find that administration on the estate of Susanna Perkins 
was granted 17 July 1609, to John Hussey, principal creditor. 

Ebenezer and Joseph Perkins, both late of New England, husbandmen, were 
purchasers of land in Brandywine hundred, New Castle county, on Delaware, 
by deeds dated Oct. 14, 1603" The will of Ebenezer Perkins, of the county of 
New Castle, husbandman, is dated 20 July 1703, and proven 16 Sept. following. 
To his youngest sons, Isaac and Ebenezer, he gave all his real estate: to eldest 
son, Daniel, £30; to daughters Abigail and Elizabeth Perkins, £15 each, to be 
paid by Isaac and Ebenezer after the sons became of age; sons Jonathan and 
David to be bound apprentices to some trade. There seems to be some confu- 
sion as to whether his wife's name was Marey (Mercy) or Mary, as may also be 
noticed in the Hampton records. The sons Isaac and Ebenezer sold the iand 
inherited from their father, to Thomas Cartmell. in 1725. In Hanson's il 01d 
Kent of Maryland," there is considerable Perkins genealogy, beginning with 
Daniel, m. Susanna Starton, 1715, and David, ni. 1723, Sarah Reding. ~ They 
are said to have been Quakers from Wales, but they were doubtless the sons of 
Ebenezer of New Castle county ; Daniel having a son of that name. 

The will of Joseph Perkins," dated 4th of 11th mo. (Jan.) 1706-7, and proven 
19 Aug. 1707, gave to eldest son Joseph all the real estate, he paying legacies to 
the other children, John, Caleb, Humphrey, Joshua, Mary and Martha. In 1724 
Joseph, Jr. sold the land to Caleb Perkins, blacksmith, who m. 1721, Ann 

Isaac Perkins, doubtless the son of Ebenezer, m. about 1723, Mary, dan. of 
Charles Booth, and removed to the Shenandoah, Va., where the most of their 
fourteen children were born.

about 330 acres of land on the Delaware river, below Burlington, io Jacob

Perkins of Burlington county, planter, for £105. This land Jacob divided in 
1711. amongst his three sons. Isaac (the eldest), Jacob and Benjamin, reserving 
a life interest therein, and while no will or administration appear, circumstances 
point to 1731 as about the time of his death. Prior to this his son Isaac had 
removed to Kent county, Md., where he died in or before 1716, leaving a son 
Wright Perkins. It is conjectured that Isaac married Elizabeth Wright, dau. 
of Joshua and Elizabeth (Empson) Wright, b. 1G70. Robert Powell and Mary 
Perkins were married at the house of Thomas Revell, in Burlington, 10 Dec. 
1696. Isaac, Jacob and Elizabeth Perkins were among the witnesses. The 
suppositional Alice, who married John Marden in 1699, doubtless belonged to 
some other branch of the family. The birth of Benjamin in 1693 looks ques- 
tionable, both from the lapse of time after the birth of his sister, and from the 
fact that in the churchyard of St. Mary's P. E. Church at Burlington we find the 
tombstone of a Benjamin Perkins, who d. 5 July 1755, aged 73 years. His wife, 
Elinor Cox, to whom he was married about 13 June 1731, d. 27 Oct. 1781, agecjL- 
7i years. 

The records of St. Mary's contain the baptisms of Isaac, Jacob, Benjamin 
and Mary Perkins, 20 Nov. 1703. Hannah, dau. of Jacob, Jr. and Sarah, was 
bapt. 7 Sept. 1710, and Bathsheba, her sister (who had the same name as one of 
the daughters of John Hussey), 20 July 1710. Jacob. Jr. died about Dec, 1731, 
and in his will names his children. Abraham (eldest son). Rebecca, David. Mary, 
Ann. Susanna, Hannah, Sarah, Bersheba, Martha. David died about three 
months after his father, unmarried. 

Benjamin Perkins is supposed to have been the father of Major Jacob Perkins 
of Wellingborough township, Burlington county, who died 6 Oct. 1792, aged 61 
years, 26 days. 

There was a William Perkins of Alloways Creek, Salem county, X. J., who 
died 1720, leaving wife Mary, and children, Mary, m. to James Vance, Matthew, 
Jane, Susanna, David, John and Ann Perkins. 

William Perkins, a passenger to Burlington, N. J., on the Kent, 1677, died at 
sea, leaving wife Mary, and children Thomas, Mary and Abigail. The son died 
without issue in 1601, and was inherited by his sisters. Mary, wife of Henry 
Grubb. and Abigail, wife of Thomas Paper. This William was from Selby in 
Leicestershire, the son of Thomas Perkins, a Baptist minister, and grandson of 
Rev. William Perkins, of a well known family. 

The writer would be pleased to know whether any thing further has been dis- 
covered as to the antecedents of Isaac and Susanna Perkins of Hampton ; 
whether their grandson, Benjamin Perkins, was certainly born in 1603. and 
whether the births of the sixteen children of John and Rebecca Hussey are of 
record. Gilbert Cope.

Historical Intelligence. 

Prince's Pamphlet on Hosier's Narrative of Weymouth's Voyage. —In 
1860 Mr. George Prince printed at Bath, Maine, a pamphlet in which he gave 
reasons for believing that George's River was the river explored by Weymouth. 
Mr. Prince has lately presented to the New-England Historic Geneological 
Society a bound copy of that work, with additions in manuscript and print. 
In the pamphlet published in I860 he re-printed James Hosier's first edition of 
his narrative, originally printed at London in 160."-. Mr. Prince, in the preface 
to the volume presented to the Society. say=> of Rosier and the 1605 Narrative: 

" He call', these minutes from his sea-journal, a brief summe, a brief relation, 
and says distinctly that he purposely omitted certain parts which might inform 
foreign nations of the locality. I printed tins, thirty-three years ago. I 
have now had printed Rosier's second edition, which he calls Extracts. It 
w r as prepared by him and copied from his sea-journal in 1625 for the great work 
of Samuel Purchas in live large quarto volumes. It will be seen that they are 
very similar, as of course they wo aid be, on the same subject and from the same 
pen. This second edition contains some of those items that he omitted from 
his first edition, the latitude, the variation, the direction in which his discovered 
river lay from Monhegan, and other items of much interest to the public."

List of the Executive and Ligislative Bodies of Virginia. — The Rich- 
mond Dispatch has a department devoted to ''Queries and Answers," which is 
proving very useful to historical students. We copy from the issue of July 16 
the following communication from the indefatigable Mr. Brock, which shows 
that he is doing good service in collecting material for the history of Virginia. 
We hope some of our readers may be able to help him : 

" My thanks are due to you again for a number of gratifying responses to my 
query under the caption ' Virginia Almanacs' in your issue of the 25th ultimo. 
I have now at my command for the purpose before indicated the publication of the 
list of members of the Cabinet and of the legislative bodies of Virginia from its 
settlement to the present day — lists printed and in MS. and almanacs for the fol- 
lowing dates: 1607, 1619, 1629-30, 1639, 1642, 1642-43, 1644, 1645, 1616. 1653, 
1654, 1654-55, 1656, 1657-58, 1658-59, 1659-60, 1660-61, 1661-62, 1663, 1666.

The value of a complete list of the executive and legislative bodies of Vir- 
ginia for historical and genealogical purposes may not be overestimated. The 
State could not make a more judicious or useful expenditure than in such a 
publication, which might be annotated. I would be obliged in any lists not

Prepared by the Historiographer, Rev. Ezra Hoyt Byington, D.D., of Newton, Mass. 

The sketches of deceased members prepared for the Register are of 
necessity brief, because the space that can be appropriated is quite limited. 
Ail the materials for more extended memoirs which can be gathered are 
preserved in the archives of the Society, and they will be available for use 
in preparing the " Memorial Biographies," of which four volumes have 
been issued and a fifth volume is in press. The income from the Towne 
Memorial Fund is devoted to the publication of these volumes. 

Abbott Lawbexce, A.M., LL.B., was elected a resident member of this 
Society November 4, 1874. He was born in Boston, September 9. 1S23. the son 
of Abbott and Katherine (Bigelowj Lawrence. His father was United States 
Minister to England, 1849-52. His Puritan ancestor, John Lawrence, came to 
"Watertown in 1635, from Suffolk County, England. The family of Lawrence 
has existed in England from the 11th century, and has produced a large number 
of men of distinction and of usefulness. 

Abbott Lawrence was of the seventh generation from John Lawrence. Among 
his American ancestors there have been great merchants and manufacturers, 
men distinguished in political life, at the bar. in medicine, and in the pulpit, 
as well as in diplomacy and in literature. One who turns the pages of the 
genealogy of John Lawrence, from 1035. for two centuries and a half, and eight 
generations, will find everywhere evidences of the sterling excellence of the 
English Puritan stock. 

Abbott Lawrence was graduated from Harvard University in 1849, having 
been prepared for college in the Boston public schools. He took a course in the 
Law School, but did not engage in the practice of the law. For about ten years 
he was a member of a firm that was engaged in manufacturing. He has been 
for many years president of one of the largest manufacturing corporations in 
the city of Lawrence. He was also a director in several other corporations. 
and gave a large part of his time to a careful supervision of their affairs. A 
few years ago his name was put forward by his friends for the office of Collector 
for the Port of Boston. The letter, which commended him for this position. 
bore the signatures of a large number of the leading business men of Boston, 
and it is a striking testimonial to his standing among business men. 

In his earlier life Mr. Lawrence spent several years in foreign travel, and he 
has since been abroad a number of times. He found time for some literary 
work and for historical investigations. He edited the Diary of his maternal 
grandfather, Timothy Bigelow^a noted lawyer of Groton. This was published 
in 1870. He was a member of a number of historical societies. 

Mr. Lawn-nee married, April 12, 1853, Harriette, only daughter of J. W. Paige, 
Esq., of Boston. They had six children. His residence in this city was on 
Commonwealth Avenue. He had a summer cottage at Nahant, where he died, 
after a long illness, July 6, 1893. 

Pit. Rev. William Ingraham Kip, D.D., a corresponding member, elected 
January 4, 1871, died at San Francisco. Cal., April G, 1893. 

The family of DeKuype (Kip) is of French extraction, although immediately 
from Holland. The first mention of the name in the City of New York is of 
Hcndrick DeKuype, the grandson of Sir Kuloff DeKuype, who fell at the battle 
of Jarnac about 1570, in the army of the Duke of Anjou Mr. DeKuype was 
sent to this country in 1G35, by the Foreign Country Co., for the e\; ! 'ration of 
the north-east passage to the Indies. Fie soon returned to [loilui i. hut left 
three sons in this country, who all became large landed proprietors. They pur-

chased the property at Kip's Bay, N. Y., and erected a mansion, the family 

home for over two centuries. 

Win. Ingraham Kip was the son of Leonard Kip fa descendant of Hendrick 
DeKuype) and Maria Ingraham, and was born in New York City, Oct. 3, 1811. 
He was educated at Yale College, where he graduated in 1831, and took up the 
study of law. His tastes subsequently led him to study theology, and four 
years later he graduated from the General Theological Seminary. New York. 
He was first called to St. Peter's Church, Morristown, X. J., and later served as 
assistant at Grace Church, N. Y. In 1838 he became rector of St. raid's Church, 
Albany, where he remained until 1853, when he was chosen missionary Bishop 
of California. He was the first bishop of that State for nearly forty years, and 
saw the wild land turn to one of the gardens of the Lord. 

He married Maria Lawrence, a daughter of Isaac Lawrence, president of the 
United States Bank. New York. Her grand-uncle was Capt. James Lawrence, 
who said " don't give up the ship *' as he fell upon the deck of the frigate Chesa- 
peake when defending it against the British ship Shannon. June 1, 1813. 

He died on the 6th of April, 1803. His wife and two sons survive him. Col. 
Lawrence Kip. his older son, resides in New York, and William Ingraham Kip. 
the other, in San Francisco. Bishop Kip had decided literary tastes, and his 
book entitled " The Double Witness of the Church " has reached its 23d thousand 
v edition. and is held in high regard among Americans. Other books of his are 
" Christmas Holidays in Home,"' -'The Lenten Last," " Early French Missions 
in North America," •' Catacombs of Lome." etc. etc.

Edward Rupert Humphreys, A.M., LL.D., was elected a resident member 
Oct. 3, I860. He was born of English parentage in Dublin, Ireland. March 1, 
1820, and died in Boston March 20, 1803. His father was a distinguished clergy- 
men of the Church of England. 

After passing through the usual public-school education of England, lie en- 
tered the University of Cambridge where he attained distinction as a classical 
scholar. On graduating from the University he studied surgery and medicine, 
but soon devoted himself to the occupation of his life — that of an educator and 
educational writer. In 184-i he was made Director of Education of Prince 
Edward's Island. He became head-master in classics in Merchiston Castle 
Academy near Edinburgh in 1848, and held a similar position in the ancient 
grammar school of Cheltenham from 1852 to 1850. In the hist named year lie 
came to Boston, and soon took a. high place among scholars and educators. He 
was for three years an assistant editor of the Boston Post. But his elder work 
was the preparation of young men for college. His "Collegiate School" in 
Boston gained a high reputation, and he sent out from it in the long period of his 
educational career many boys who are now prominent in public and professional 

Dr. Humphreys was an accomplished and accurate classical scholar. He was 
authority on any point concerning Hebrew, Greek or Latin literature. He 
enjoyed an extensive acquaintance with scholars on both sides of the oceau. 
Hon. W. E. Gladstone was one of his warm personal friends. 

While at Prince Edward's Island Dr. Humphreys published an edition of 
Horace and some minor classical works. While in Scotland and Cheltenham he 
published " Lyra Latina. or Translations from Modern English and American 
Poets into various kinds of Latin Verse;" "Lyra Hellenica, or Translations from 
Modern Poets into Greek Iambic Verse;" " Exercitationes Iambicse, or Original 
Exercises in Greek Iambic Composition;" "The. Third Decade of Livy, v. tell 
Notes and Illustrations" (London, Longmans, 1857); Manuals of "Latin and 
Greek Prose Composition," of " Civil Law," of •• Political Science," of " Moral 
Philosophy," etc., mostly published by Longmans in several editions. After 
coming to America he published " Lessons on the Liturgy of the Protestant. 
Episcopal Church" (Boston, 18G0) ; "Essays on the Education of Military 
Officers" (1362); "The Higher Education of Europe and America" (1870)"; 
"America Past, Present and Prospective" (1870). He was a prominent con- 
tributor to the National Quarterly Review and other magazines. 

Dr. Humphreys received the degree of LL.D. from Kin-'- University and 
King's College, Aberdeen, in 1850. He left a widow, several sou-,, ami one

The History of the Centennial Celebration of the Inauguration of George Wash- 
ington asjirst President of the United States. Edited by Clarence Wintiiuop 
Bo wen, Pit. D., Secretary of the Committee. New York: 1). Appleton and 
Company. 1892. Folio; pp. 673. 

This volume is both a memorial of a highly interesting event and a permanent 
addition to the library of history. It serves to mark in a fitting maimer the 
date of the completed century of our national government, and, as such monu- 
ment of the progress of time, may outlast any like symbol of stone or bronze. 
As a volume of history it gives an authentic account of the current event of 
the centennial celebration, and also of the circumstances and ceremonies with 
..which the government began. Under the latter head are comprised much 
biographical information (some of which has hitherto failed of publication) 
and certain descriptive accounts of the event of President Washington's tirst 
inauguration, contained in letters written at the time by minister-, resident to 
their respective governments, and which have recently been excerpted from 
the archives of those governments. The volume is profusely illustrated by 
engravings, most of which have been produced by the aid of photography, 
with results highly satisfactory to the connoisseur in art. Besides portraits 
of great historical interest, the illustrations comprise much that relates to the 
period of the organization of the government and to the celebration itself, 
which took place in New York city on April 30 and May 1 and 2, 13^9, As 
respects the celebration the artist photographer seized every point of vantage, 
and gives us scenes from life at the most interesting stages of the great demon- 
stration. It is to be noted that all this is also history, and that, as far av\ ay into 
the centuries as these pictures shall endure, the event, in its minute liueaments 
as well as its general aspects, may be visually known. 

The table of contents numbers twenty-two chapters, each having its special 
topic. For the present purpose, however, the contents may be summed up as 
a historical sketch of the inauguration ; brief biographies of the members 
of the First Congress; a short account of the semi-centennial observance, 
which occurred in New York, April 30, 1839; a description, at length, of 
the celebration of 1889, and a chapter of "notes on portraits." The chapter 
on the inauguration was written by the editor. The story is told in a con- 
secutive way, with numerous touches of detail, and in a manner to give a unity 
of impression. The chapter of biographies contains, as already intimated, 
much new matter, and it is, for reference, of special value in the way of 
supplement to the dictionaries and formal works of biography. The writer 
is Paul Leicester Ford. In regard to his work the editor says : "Nearly a year 
was spent by him [Mr. Ford] in preparing the chapter, so difficult was it to 
obtain the dates of the births and deaths of all the members of the First Con- 
gress under the Constitution." The fidelity in research thus suggested extends 
to other matters no less, as is evinced by various foot notes, which signify 
extensive correspondence for ascertainment of facts from original sources. 
The names of each State delegation are alphabetically arranged in the text, 
making reference thereto convenient. 

Five of the topics in the account of the centennial celebration have been 
treated upon by the editor and the others by chairmen of the several com- 
mittees. One topic is the "Literary Exercises," in which are given in full, 
among other things, the poem by J. G. Whittier, the oration by Chauncey M. 
Depew and brief remarks by Benjamin Harrison, President of the United 
States. The chapter on "The Banquet" contains, among others, verbatim 
reports of the speeches of President Harrison, Chief Justice Fuller. ex-Presi- 
dents IJaye.-, and Cleveland, Gen. W. T. Sherman, President Eliot of Harvard 
University and James 11. Low ell. 

490 Book Notices. [Oct. 

An important part of the commemorative doings was an exhibition of works 
of art and personal relics, illustrative of the period of the Revolution and that 
which succeeded. These were largely original portraits on canvas and in 
sculpture, and engravings of early date. The catalogue contained 1.374 num- 
bers, some of which were newspapers of the periods named. The chairman of 
the committee in his report ventures the opinion that this exhibition (the •• loan 
exhibition '*) " will stand as the best achievement of the centennial celebration." 
The remark seems warranted if the collection be regarded as the basis, or 
nucleus, of the total art exhibit here given, in exact similitude, in tie' engrav- 
ings of the centennial volume. By photograhy the art treasures .that is the 
historical portraits) of many public and private institutions, and of many 
homes, as well as those contained in the exhibition itself, are reproduced, and 
these faithful copies may be said to bring us into immediate contact with Wash- 
ington and his renowned contemporaries. Thus, the volume supplies what no 
art gallery can do, the several portraits, both those of the greatest and these 
of lesser fame in the art catalogues, of these illustrious personages. The 
student, whether of history or of art, with these various portraits of a partic- 
ular person assembled before him. is advantaged in having opportunity for in- 
stant comparative criticism, and, as a historical student, especially, he has '■lie 
satisfaction of acquiring in mind, a true, or at least approximately true portrait 
of the living subject. 

The possibility of thus acquiring such a portrait ceases when the concrete 
examples are but few, and these much at variance. But of personages of chief 
renown the number here is ample, Of Franklin there are 58 different portraits 
in the volume: of Washington, 20: of Jefferson, 21; of Hamilton. 10; of John 
Adams, 14-; of John Jay. 10. One portrait, at least, of each of 78 of the 96 
members of the First Congress has been obtained. A considerable number are 
of the wives or other female relatives of distinguished Americans of the period. 
In all there are 529 portraits in the volume, many being repetitions or duplicates. 
A considerable number are photographs of busts. 

The ureat value of this array of portraiture is much enhanced by the " Notes 
on Portraits,'' which make up the closing chapter of the volume. This chapter, 
which is of 135 pages length, was written by the editor, and consists of a his- 
torical account of all the more celebrated portraits. It is at once a storehouse 
of information and a monument of painstaking, and amounts to an authoritative 
text book on the subject. The writer frequently mentions the sources of his 
knowledge, strengthening the proof of authenticity ; and. as to the identity of the 
artist, and like points, defers, in several instances, to the judgment of Charles 
Henry Hart, of Philadelphia, who was of the art committee of the Exhibition, 
and who, he says, is " an acknowledged authority on historical portraits." The 
volume is supplied with an excellent index of 121 pages, the work of Robert H. 
Kelby, of the New York Historical Society. The printer and the bookbinder 
have contributed in their special ways in making the volume a work of art. 
But 1.000 copies have been issued, and a donation of one copy lias been made to 
the United States government, to each State and Territory of the Union, to the 
city of New York, and to the governments of England, France. Spain, Holland 
and Sweden, whose representatives were present at the inauguration and sent 
home official accounts of it.

The Rhode Island Historical Society, at it- meeting held April 1. 1893, passed 
a resolution that the proceedings of the Society should be published quarterly, 
the first number to consist of the usual annual transactions and the subsequent 
numbers for the year to consist of such matter hitherto unpublished as the pub- 
lishing committee should -elect. The two first numbers have been issued. The 
first or April number contains a report of the proceeding's; the address <>'- the 
president* G, n. Horatio Rogers; the reports of the committees; the reports oi 
the librarian and the treasurer; the annual necrology and some other matter.-. 

1893.] Booh Notices. 491 

The publication committee are Rev. Dr. E. Benjamin Andrews, and Messrs. 
John G. Vose and Amasa M. Eaton. Wilfred H. Munro is the assistant editor. 
The work is well printed. We wish the Society success in irs new departure. 

The second or July number is devoted to Librarian Perry's valuable report ou 
the nature, extent and condition of the tow*: and city records of Rhode Island. 
This subject has engaged the attention of the Historical Society and other 
students of history lor ten years or more. Dr. Perry refers to the various 
plans that have been proposed and considered, among them one for 
procuring "accurate copies of all the colonial town records with a 
view to their publication." Finally, at the quarterly meeting of the 
Historical Society held in October, 1S92, the librarian was authorized 
to issue circulars to the several town and city clerks, asking information 
in regard to the condition of their records. Replies were secured from 
all the clerks, answering a series of questions which had been seut to them. 
Dr. Perry in the work before us prints the answers of the town clerks or ab- 
stracts of them. They are arranged alphabetically under the towns, and the 
compiler has prefixed. to each town a brief summary of its history. In Rhode 
Island the town records include the probate records and the registry of deeds, 
as well as the doings of the town and the records of births, marriages audi deaths. 
The work of Dr. Perry i.s similar to that done by the Record Commission of 
Massachusetts, His introductory report contains many matters of interest, 
particularly to antiquarian students, on the state and colony as well as the town 
records. " It is a matter of regret," says he, "that while the records of our 
civil war are well preserved, admirably arranged and cared for, the records of 
the Colonial and Revolutionary wars, and of the war of 1812, are meagre, 
detached and scattered, and no properly organized efforts have yet been made to 
collect, arrange and index them, with the view of honoring the memory of the 
men and women who risked, if they did not their lives and fortunes for the 
freedom and independence of their state and country." A Commi.-5.sion, he 
adds, " cannot too soon be organized with this object in view." 

The annual report of the librarian, Amos Perry. LL.D., has been reprinted 
from the Proceedings in the April number, and its title will be found at the head 
of this notice. Dr. Perry gives a list and description of the buildings and rooms 
which have served as cabinets of the Society since its organization, a period 
of more than seventy years, and a full report of the condition of the library and 
museum. The Society has some valuable paintings illustrating the history of 
Providence, which Dr. Perry has described, and he has been able by his research 
to give an account of the painters and oilier interesting facts concerning them.

About ten miles in a south-easterly direction from the pleasant city of Bel-

island of about 6,000 acres, formerly called Long Island, now known by the 
more euphonious name of Ilesborough. Nearly thirteen miles, we are informed,

found French and Indians there, often seen together in those troublesome times. 
They sharply eluded the Captain's vigilance, who obtained, as we learn, more 
property than persons ; his attempts being futile to catch the "salvages'' or 
their companions. 

One-fifth of the often described Waldo grant, of nearly one thousand acres, 
including a great part of the now known Knox and Waldo counties, passed by 
inheritance into the hands ol Mrs. Knox, wife of Washington's War Secretary, 
Henry Knox, who afterward purchased the remaining rights, and became owner 
in full, in his own right, and that inherited by his wife, except such portions as 
had been previously alienated. An agreement, printed in the book, was made 
between said Knox and the Long Island settlers on the 3d of August, 1799, at 
the house of Major Philip Ulmer, in Ducktrap. 

The early settlements of the island ante-date the Revolution, the author of 
the book deciding, differently from some others, that Shubael Williams from 
Connecticut was the first settler, in 1704, his purchase being about three hun- 
dred acres. " Without doubt," says Mr Farrow, w; Samuel Pendleton came with 
Shubael and settled on the east side, on what is known as Little Island, in the 
month of September. 1704, and his descendants live there yet." 

In the year 1788. a petition was sent by the inhabitants of the place, to the 
General Court, desiring an examination of the claim of General Knox to the 
ownership of the island, and asking for incorporation as a town. A commission 
was accordingly appointed in 1797. "to settle and declare their rights." The 
result of these measures is given, dated May 24, 1800, but the act of incorpora- 
tion passed Jan. 28., 1780. 

A plan of the town, as originally surveyed by Warren, with locations and 
names of first settlers, forty-rive in all, faces page 93. Thomas Ames, their 
first minister, began to preach at the island about 1789. Thomas Waterman 
was representative to the General Court for North Haven and Vinal Haven, 
originally Fox Islands. 

Between the years 1702 and 1837. twenty-two schooners, two sloops and one 
brig were built in Ilesborough; a list of the names, tonnage, masters and 
owners of these vessels being here printed. 

There has been a decrease in population in Ilesborough, the number in I860, as 
published, having been 1270. and 1006 in 1890. 

It is a singular fact that in 1819, when the question came up before the inhabi- 
tants of the town to give in their votes " for or against dividing the State of 
Massachusetts from the District of Maine," two voted in favor of separation, 
and twenty-live against it. 

Islesborough is considered a good summer resort, with attractions and con- 
veniences suited to the desires and means of seekers after rest and enjoyment. 

This work contains a number of illustrations, portraits, views and genea- 
logies, the latter taking up more than one-half of the book, which is gotten up 
in tine taste, with heavy glazed paper and good type, a credit to all concerned. 
Besides an abstract of contents there are indexes of names and illustrations.

of each, and, whenever obtainable, copies of the notable inscriptions on the 
gravestones, and much additional information gathered from many sources." 

The Adjutant General of the state of New Hampshire, in a letter to the author 
dated June 1, 1893. says, •• I beg to thank you for a copy of the Record of the 
Graves Decorated by Storer Post. It is a valuable work, and I assure you I 
appreciate it, and can understand that a large amount of labor has been put 
into the record. You have reason to be very proud of it." 

Fressingfield Porch and Pews. By Rev. John James Raven, D.D., F.S.A., 

Vicar of Fressingheld, with Witherdale, and Honorary Canon of Norwich 

Cathedral. 1892. 8vo. pp. 5. 

This is a paper reprinted from the proceedings of the Suffolk "Institute of 
Archaeology and Natural History. " The object of this paper." says the author, 
"is to draw attention to certain indications of a memorial of Aaincourt, as it 
would appear, in the porch of Fressingfield church, and likewise to the detail of 
that almost unique set of mediaeval pews which have already attracted >o much 
notice." Michael de la Pole, Earl of Suffolk, of the neighboring parish of 
Wingiieid, who married Catherine, daughter of Hugh Stafford, earl of Stafford, 
died of disease at the siege of Harfieur in 1415, and, within a month, his son 
Michael fell in the battle of Agincourt. Dr. Raven thinks he finds in the porch 
of Fressingfield a memorial of the widow to her spouse and sou who died in 
their country's service. 

Views of tin; porch and of a section of the pews are given, with a description 
of the pews which bear elaborate carvings. " The hand of the destroyer" is 
said to have " been painfully active, the saw having been ruthlessly applied to 
many of the figures," but most of them have escaped his destructive hand.

We continue in tins number our quarterly list of works relating to genealogy 
recently published. 

The Parker senealo^y makes a volume of over Ave hundred pasres. The 
emigrant ancestor of this family was Thomas Parker, who embarked for New 
England in the Susan and Ellen'in April. 1(535 (Register vol. II, page 309). He 
first settled at Lynn, and removed thence to Beading, where he died August 12. 
1683, aged about- 74. His son Hananiah had a son John born at Reading, August 
3, 1664, who removed to Lexington, where he died .Tan. 22. 1741. To his descen- 
dants this volume is chiefly devoted. The book seems to be compiled in a very 
thorough manner, and is well printed and well indexed. " Some of the features 
of the volume are a twenty-five page biography of Rev. Theodore Parker, the 
world-famed theologian; also an interesting description and history of the 
Lexington Parker homestead from 1712, from the able pen of Theodore Parker 
himself. Another part, contains the copies of the official Massachusetts 
Revolutionary records of the service of all the descendants of Dea. Thomas 
Parker mentioned in the book : the value and regard for which records should 
appeal to all patriotic descendants." The book is embellished with thirteen 
engravings, mostly portraits. 

The book on the Family of John Sullivan of Berwick, Maine, is compiled 
chiefly from papers collected by the late Hon. Thomas C. Amory. an industrious 
antiquary of Boston, by his niece Mis^ G. E. Meredith, who says in the preface 
to the work : "In 1889 I was requested to arrange the papers left by my uncle, 
the late T. C. Amory. I had been accustomed for years to hear him talk of the 
genealogical questions in which he was interested. On making, at the sugges- 
tions of two of my cousins, the present book from his Sullivan collection I 
have tried to put his matt rials in convenient order for any member of the family 
"who may share Mr. Amory's taste, and may wish to complete what he began." 
The compiler has done her work in a very satisfactory manner, and the book, 
which is handsomely printed and bound, is a fitting monument to a family which 
has borne a high place in the history of this country. John Sullivan of Ber- 
wick came> to New England in 1723. from Limerick' in Ireland. He had sous 
Major General John Sullivan, president of New Hampshire, and James Sullivan, 
governor of Massachusetts. The pediirreos by Sir Bernard Burke, printed in this 
volume, traces the family back to the O'Sullivans of Ardea. A few copies of 
the book, we understand, remain undistributed and may be purchased at three 
dollars onch of Miss Meridith, P.O. Box 3324. 

The Dolbeare Family is by Mr. Arthur Dimon Osborne of Nhw Haven, Com 1 . 
John Dolbeare, to whose descendants the book is devoted, was the sou cf 

1893.] Recent Publications. 495 

Edmund Dolbeare, who came with his family about the year 1678 from Ash- 
burton in Devonshire and settled in Boston. A genealogical letter about the 
family was communicated by Mr. Edward D. Harris to the Register for January 
last {ante pp. 24-7) and is reprinted in this book. The compiler has visited 
Hereford Cathedral and obtained extracts from the register and a rubbing of 
the brass of Sir Richard Dolbeare. A photograph of this brass and other illus- 
trations are given. -The hook is beautifully printed. 

The Wooiworth Genealogy, as stated in the title page, is devoted to the 
descendants of Richard Wooiworth, of Newbury, Mass. and Suffield, Conn. 
Mrs. Wooiworth, the principal compiler, has been engaged for thirteen years in 
collecting material for the work. She and her daughter have been very suc- 
cessful in collecting material and compiling the volume. They have made a 
very useful and handsome volume. 

The Howes Genealogy has cmite a full record of the descendants of Thomas 
Howes who came to New England about 1007, settled at Nebscussett in 
Yarmouth, Mass. in Plymouth Colony, in March 1639, and died in 166.3 aged 75. 
Thomas Howes brought with him his wife, whose maiden name was Mary Burr. 
They are said to have come from Norfolk County, Eng. A large number of 
descendants of tins couple have been collected by the compiler and their records 
are printed in this book. Much credit is due to Mr. Howes. 

Mr. Deacon, of Bridgeport. Ct., in his book on the ancestors of Rodman 
Stoddard (who was the maternal grandfather of the author's children), gives 
brief accounts of the families of Stoddard. Ware. Downing, Wiliis, Curtis, 
Walker Juclson, Winthrop and Sherman, lie dedicates his book to his children 
" in the hope that the contemplation of the zeal, fidelity and patriotism of their 
ancestors may inspire them to a useful life and faithful citizenship/' The book 
is well compiled and is illustrated -with engravings and a tabular pedigree. 

The account of the Doolittle family by Mr. Allen gives many of the descen- 
dants of Abraham Doolittle. one of the original settlers of New Haven, Ct. 
Mr. Doolittle's wife was Joaue, daughter of James Allen of Kempton, Beds, (see 
Register, vol. 46, p. 330). The compiler has done his work in a creditable 
manner. The pamphlet is reprinted from the Magazine of New England His- 
tory, and is embellished with portraits. 

The pamphlet on the Avery family is well compiled, handsomely printed, and 
is illustrated with several fine engravings. It is " not published." 

The Supplement to the Magoun Memorial, by Brevet Brig. -Gen. Samuel Breck, 
U.S.A., is intended for an appendix to his volume entitled -'Descendants of 
Aaron and Mary (Church) Magoun,"' noticed by us in April 1892 (Register, 
vol. 46, pp. 202, 201). It contains interesting matter. 

Two numbers of " The Sharpes," heretofore noticed, have recently been 
received, namely Nos. 6 and 7 for June and July, 1803. Items of interest 
relative to the Sharpes are solicited by the compiler. Mr. W. C. Sharpe of Sey-

[Hubert Pemberton, the testator, had a mother Elizabeth, a brother John, 
whose wife was named Katherine, and a brother Rafe, mayor of St. Albans. 
whose wife wa- named Frances. I am inclined to believe thai, he was a son of 
Roger Pemberton of St. Albans, who married Elizabeth, daughter of Ralfe 
More, though no Robert is found among the children of this' couple in the 
Visitation of Hertfordshire, 1G31, printed in the 22d volume of the Publications 
ofthe Plarleian Society. The Pemberton pedigree will be found on page <Si of 
that volume. 

Mr. Watkins, in his article on the Pemberton Family, vol. f-G', pp. 302-8 of 
the Register, supposes Ralph Pemberton, born about 1609, who is regarded 
as the ancestor of the Pemberton Family of Pennsylvania, to be " Ralfe " men- 
mentioned in the pedigree in the Harleian Society's publications as the son of 
Raii'e and Frances (Kempe) Pemberton; but from information he has since 
received, he is convinced that the supposition is erroneous, the father of Ralph, 
the Pennsylvania emigrant, being named William. — Editor.]

[With reference to the family of Mr. Josse Glover, the following notes taken 
some years ago from the Suffolk Court flies (with the kindly assistance of my

Elizabeth Winthrop and Mrs. Priscilla Appleton, daughters of M r Glover, and
